The Integrity of the Tears

When anguish surrounds and with tears, you cry

Those are the priceless pearls from the eye

The sadness and distress they sustain

The gigantic secrets and outrages contain

Know that the sunshine follows after the rain

The humble tears such burdens can’t refrain

Concealing all the pains of your dismal heart

When you are left alone and can’t resort

When your precious ones refuse to hear

Be conscious , mindful and know it clear

The modest tears surge to save you

From a sadness that a soul can’t bear

The tears have the sovereignty to repair

When you are shattered and torn my dear

The tears make you feel content and composed

Then left behind are only sorrows and fear .
