Purpose For Tears (poem)

Updated on November 25, 2012

Oh mother share the purpose for your tears

What touched your heart and causes you to cry

What comfort have I which I may apply

Or will these arms remove your crystal spheres


Sweet mother share with me the reason try

Why all my sunshine fades and disappears

Why every droplet hits my heart like spears

Can kisses renew sparkle to my sky


Without a word she stares beyond unknown

I hold her tight still wondering what’s wrong

Perhaps in silence she may find some rest


And there within a dream which lovers own

She turns to me her voice a gentle song

I cry because I’m happy I’m so blessed

      Mh, this is beyond beautiful and touches my heart to its core. I am really emotional right now because of my sweet mother, and this does make me think of her. Very profound, exquisite and stunning poetry.

      The video is amazing too. . . . one of the most beautiful I have heard and great visually too - wish you were here . . . sweet thoughts.
