A Single Tear Fell

tear

Always held here deep in my heart

Still in my mind though now apart

In photos now I see your face

Now in my mind I see your grace

Grief has danced its Tango with me

Leaving behind sweet memory

Ever lonely I walk the line

Tears well up and make my eyes shine

Empty inside I search the sky

A single tear falls from my eye

Rolling onto an upturned lip

For you I smile and take the trip

Eager to take on a new life

Loss put aside like a dull knife

Lest I forget for your name was mum

This is so beautiful, Craig… You capture the emotions so dear to the child who has lost their mother. And, we are all children when we lose a parent. A tear fell from my eye, as I thought about the inevitability of losing mine in the not-so-distant future. Great job with this. 🙂
