Day 28, Celebrate National Poetry Month–the Tear

The Tear

The tear didn’t tear my heart
It cleansed and opened it
The fear didn’t offer fright
Just a window to see the light
The night didn’t last forever
But it lingered to show the way
The day wasn’t complete
But it did let me see there was no defeat
I won’t last forever
But I am here now
And now is all I need
