Drops of water splashing on a rock
I watch the drop break apart
Into a million more drops of water
Millions of drops ... water
Sparkling like diamonds in the sunlight
Splash here ... splash there
I've watched my own teardrops fall
Fall while in amazement
At how many I could cry
Like a waterfall that never stops
My eyes cried teardrops for my child
Making pools ... here ... there
When I lay my head on my pillow
My tear drops flow like a river
From my eyes
Standing up I became a waterfall
Tears falling on my hands
I stared in amazement as each fell
Diamond teardrops perfectly shaped
Ready to put in a gold ring
If they were solid
Sometimes I become a flood
Drowning in tear drops
I have nowhere to run
Amazed at the drops of water
Splashing from my eyes
Onto the rocks beneath my feet
I've been a river ... I've been a waterfall
A flood all at the same time
Today ... I am a quiet, deep pool of calm water
Note by this Author:
Like a quiet, deep pool of calm water ... my grief lies below the surface like the fish that swim around. Sometimes ... my grief surfaces just as a fish does when someone throws bread to them.
I know grief is a forever feeling in my Heart ... it's love for my son ... sad I'll never see him again. Pain for what was ... pain for what isn't now. It really does hurt so bad ... though I'm so very strong ... I've accepted it.
No matter what ... no matter how bad ... everything is going to be alright.
