Companion For Life...

Behind every tear

A story of emotions
So varied,
As it wraps
Nay, traps man
In the web
Of living reality
To the core.

A tear, so precious,
It awakens the soul
As the world rolls.
The tear bathes
Our thoughts
Leaving one
Relieved or relaxed.

Tears, medicine
To reduce pain.
Tears, universality,
The only companion
In crisis.

nice play on the double meaning in lies....and yes tears comfort in those times, if we let them come...

Tears of sadness,  tears of joy, tears of rage - tears of grief  - very utlitarian function, isn't it?
