The Girl Whose Eyes Went Dry - a Poem

Updated on December 1, 2012
Source
A short song that I remember during childhood: The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others happy and to build a little heaven down here.

The Girl Whose Eyes Went Dry


Untimely, her tears just fell again that day

She asks the Lord, her tears to dry away

One more teardrop fall, she can’t bear no more

It shatters like glass reaching the floor.


She learned a story by Comrie Palmer

A true story- Dying To Get There

And while on earth you have to be good

For at the end will be the same where you once stood;

And be wise for wisdom rewards

In our life beyond and onwards;

And be happy because love and laughter is eternity

Through your journey and forever as an entity.


She carries the thoughts with her and how

Trying not to cry; the day to be happy is now

When all things fail she keeps to fight

Of only happiness to make it right.


And then she recalls when her eyes are finally dry

The Lord replied, “I can’t stop it but you have to try.”

All sadness forgotten, passed on, gone

Her eyes smiles, a last tear there is­­ none.

      Debbie, thank you so much. Often times, our poems come straight from our own experiences and feelings for that certain moment or those moments that come to revisit over and over. The last part of the poem is yet hard to achieve, but truly, trying hard is promising to myself to leave past in the past and use the words "as a better opportunity" for the present.

      Cheers to you, Deborah! Love, Tess

      p.s. I had to end the poem positively somehow, *smile*.

      I epigramman, you made my heart melt like tonight's grilled cheese in my McDonald's burger, hehehe! Really, it is sooo admirable of you to say something sweet for me, I thank you straight-from-my-heart for your encouraging and admiring words.

      I used to watch all of Bruce Lee's martial arts movies with my pa way back growing up in the Philippines. We would also invite neighbours but they have to pay a little like .25 centavos to watch Bruce Lee. My ma would advertise it on a small chalkboard outside our gate. Our 'sala' living room would be filled with excitement from viewers from the age of 7 to adults! And pa would bring out some cold San Miguel beer and so my ma gets beer sales in her store too. Now, you are making me curious 'bout "I am Bruce Lee". I want to find out about it. Will put it in mind, perhaps watch it online. I would like to share this new documentary dvd to my brother, see if he could get my pa to watch it.

      My fave Chinese restaurant is along Dundas and Leslie sts. near Bay St. (the one behind Nathan Phillip Square) named Yueh Tung. I wonder if this is the one you are referring to. It's really popular and even the Blue Jays dine there. Yueh Tung really got great hot and sour soup, thick too and their famous Chili Chicken!

      My photography these days are spent in my kitchen. I have lots of photos on my Facebook past and present. Would love to go out, but I need a driver, hahaha! I'm also Diane Arbus now on the other page (haha, doing two things at the same time). Thank you for caring to share some good stuff, epigramman! Take care!

      ...you are a very special person - a very gifted writer - and an old soul beyond your years - I am so proud to have you as my esteemed colleague - and of course - lol- esteemed fellow Canadian - just finished watching an excellent new documentary on dvd called I am Bruce Lee in which I would highly recommend - and just a little story for you - when I went down to Toronto I would always go to my favorite Chinese at the corner of Bay and Dundas (just a bit down Dundas) and order hot and sour soup and a dish of hot spicy peanut chicken - yum yum - do you happen to know the name of it? It's on the tip of my tongue - sending you warm wishes and good energy from lake erie time 10:34pm ontario canada and how is your photography coming along these days? One of my favorite portrait photographers was the late Diane Arbus

      Life's journey brings both good and bad. Our emotions are the same type of rollercoaster. Tears of sadness need to be fleeting moments. Unfortunately, dry eyes and tears of joy are the same. Great poem!

      That's a good quote, unknown spy. At least when tears fills a bucketful, we know that crying has to end and let change have its turn for the better. Thank you for your kind admiration to the poem. Big smile! ~Tess

      So beautifully written. I think sometimes we just have to cry ourselves dry, pick ourselves up, have faith things will get better and start over again....but with dry eyes.

      Dear Faith Reaper, ...and we should all try to stay happy looking into fighting back any tear from coming so it doesn't fall. I try right away to think of the possible and the bright side and even give myself a smile, a little curl in the corners raising my cheeks...then, a much better feeling tops it. Thank you Faith Reaper, love to you!
