Song of Tears by Tiema H.M

Tears could speak

Through a drop or two

Trickling down a cheek

And a story is told

Of deep seated feelings

A story of hope

A story of hate

A story of love

A story of triumph

Not in words or pictures

Not in songs or drama

Could a story be well told

Tears could speak

Of

Fears

Regret

Pain

Remorse

Not in thousand pictures

Not in thousand words

Could such a story

Be well expressed
