The Tear (poem)

Another tear sent softly through the night

To wander through their dreams while they’re apart

And listens to the sorrows of a heart

Which yearns to hear a voice say it’s alright

-

He learns a brand new meaning of alone

As voices from the shadows become clear

They talk of doubt he doesn’t need to hear

His mind resigned to marvels of its own

-

And time was never meant to move so slow

Each ticking taps into a tortured soul

Eternity of seconds take their toll

Where was the sleep that he had come to know

-

Then on the phone which called from far away

A tearful voice said Hi are you okay

      Oh ...a lonely and tortured soul certainly needs to hear that it's alright, and it's always so lovely when someone tries to check in on another to make sure he or she is okay, even if that person is a long distance away.

      Blessings
