Tears-Faithful friends


The most faithful friends of mine,

Always with me even in darkness as well as in sunshine.

They reflect in my eyes during happiness,

And fall through my cheeks during sad times.

Oh, Yes! Tears are the faithful friends of mine.

Tears make me strong;They make me sing their own songs.

Tears make me humble;They correct me when I'm wrong.

Tears give me comfort;They silently tell me 'Hey girl You are hurt!'.

Tears don't ask permission;They come out when I'm in confusion.

Tears are not a sign of weakness but a source of courage;

they are unstoppable even in happiness.

Tears bring out the deepest emotions within me

They give me strength & silently tell me ' Hey girl you are free!'

Tears put me out of my misery & make me feel just fine

When my heart can bear no longer-

They silently come out & take me on an emotional ride.

So, yes! Tears are the most faithful friends of mine.

Thank u :) I wanted to write something different and oneday I was so down about the way my life had turned out to be tat I found myself crying like crazy.. It was strange because I'm not the person who usually cries for anything as I considered tears as a sign of weakness. But That day after the tears had stopped flowing, I found myself feeling relieved and rejuvenated. Thats when I wrote this...

Thank u for reading this
