I wonder how many different
Tears I can cry.
Once my tears were childlike,
And wiped away by a mother.
Then I cried as I saw my firstborn,
And wiped away her tears too.
Over the years I've had need to shed,
Tears of pain, tears of sadness.
Tears of loss, tears of sorrow,
Tears which fell unprompted.
I'm just not sure how many more
I have to cry.
