Tear of an Angel
5/21/2021

As I saw a teardrop start to well

In the corner of your eye,

It stirred in me a passion.

And made me start to wonder why.

In a world of contradictions

It would seem so out of place,

That such a fine and lovely creature

Could have a teardrop on her face.

I would consider it a blessing

Given by our God above,

If I thought that one tear shed by you,

Was shed for me with love.

A warmth and kindness bestowed on me,

By one as wonderful as you

Is as a drop of moisture on an autumn flower,

Left by the morning dew.

That a single tear could possess the power

To move a man so much

Would define his need in the evening hour,

Of her warmth and gentle touch.

Then I knew Iā€™d found the answer

As I wiped it from your eye.

In that fine yet fleeting moment,

I had seen an angel cry.
