Poem: Hidden Tears

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Hidden tears is a poem about someone who feels broken as she watches the one she loves hide his tears of pain.

She wants to soothe his heartache, making the twinkle in his eyes gleam once more.

She wants to feel his embrace as they live through these moments together becoming stronger each day.

"To Comfort You - by Bette Midler


Hidden Tears

It breaks her heart
seeing tears fill his eyes,
with him desperately trying to look brave
concealing his pain.

She wants to soothe the hurt
hiding deep inside his soul,
to make him grin from ear to ear with that familiar twinkle glowing in his eyes.

To feel his essence comforting her
in the loving embrace of his hugs,
to live life in the moment
bringing his soul happiness once more.


Your presence is the best gift you can give a friend who is in pain.

Don't fix. Just be there.
