The Gentle Tear (poem)

Updated on August 28, 2014

A gentle tear that somehow time forgot

A summer’s feeling mingled in the air

Came back to claim a moment he could not

-

Was on a day when pleasing warmth was wrought

The scent of jasmine came from everywhere

A gentle tear that somehow time forgot

-

A sip of wonder to his soul then brought

A sense of something sighs ago was there

Came back to claim a moment he could not

-

Again his heart for some conclusion sought

As from a picture came eternal stare

A gentle tear that somehow time forgot

-

He held it close still missing her a lot

Yet something had returned to strip him bare

Came back to claim a moment he could not

-

Now where was he when in death she was fraught

Warm summer’s day bore gem of the affair

A gentle tear that somehow time forgot

Came back to claim a moment he could not
