Cost of a Tear

Today a tear came to my eye,

Just one little tear my want not to cry.

It glittered like crystal as it grew in form

A raindrop of emotion in a life of storm.

What cost a tear?

Was price too dear?

 
 

Today a tear came to my eye,

A single reminder of things gone by.

An abundance of love I once knew,

Shared of myself with only so few.

What cost a tear?

To liberate of self from what I did fear?

 
 

Today a tear came to my eye,

A memory I’ll keep until I die.

It spoke of a future built on the past

A monument to tolerance – designed to last.

With bricks of forgiveness, and mortar of love

It will soar to the heavens highest above.

 
 

For the cost of a tear

New life may be earned.
