Tears are shed every day
Tears are shed come what may.
It may mean many things
Sometimes it is hard to explain
sometimes it is tears of joy
And sometimes it is pain.

Some tears are shed in silence
Because we don't want anyone to hear.
Some tears tell of the strength that we have
And some tell of our fear.

Some tears are shed aloud
Because we want to be heard.
Some tears are a call for help
Some tears just go unheard.

Some tears we cry, they often say
The words we do not speak.
Some tears are for the anger we feel.
Some tears are for the love we seek.

Some tears are shed when life is lost
Some tears are shed when one is born
Life may come and life may go
The nights may be long and dark
But the morning brings another spark.

Eclipsed Thoughts 9:58 PM  

nice poem starry... as always,,,,

P.S.: It is difficult to read because of the color combination... can you do something about it?

geetha 10:37 PM  

Beautiful poem..
Many meanings of tears.. sometimes wrongly understood by people. But every drop is definitely meaningful.

Aditi 11:16 PM  

beautiful.. silent tears shed sometimes because its all there is to comfort..

Princess 11:24 PM  

Tears are a sort of expression..
I feel it is a sort of outburst for the unconscious mind which holds sadness which can never be revealed otherwise..

Sanjay 5:04 AM  

I loved your poem. Tears interpreted in so many different ways!

Lotus Reads 5:58 AM  

How beautifully written, Starry, and so true, too. There are many different kinds of tears and all of them are good because they are tangible expressions of our different emotions. This was wonderful to read, I thank you for sharing.

Blessed 2:43 PM  

How sweet and sad Miss Starry....
Sometimes I think I have cried enough tears. I sometimes wonder how I can still conjure up more tears. How come they haven't run dry? But I am glad I can cry. It cleanses me and hopefully, helps me live longer.
Hope you have a nice weekend.

passerby55 11:08 PM  

Nice post on Tears.

I think it's better to shed them and let your kind, generous hands clean them.

Lalitha, have you seen small, young children cry and then how they clean each others tears with their handkerchief. I had ones seen such in a small classroom. It was a sweet tearful moment to watch.

Jeevan 3:08 AM  

Some of my nights are in tears! Wish all tears must not come from pain.

Loved the poem dear:)

Krithika 1:35 AM  

very touchy..loved these lines

Some tears we cry, they often say
The words we do not speak.
Some tears are for the anger we feel.
Some tears are for the love we seek.

How are you? and how's ur health?

Sorry, i havent been blogging much these days. Its been so long. Things are really hectic at work and i hardly find time to comment or blog.

Was it you who commented on my post "behind the lens?" I wasnt sure as the username said lalitha instead of the starry i know.

Hope you have a great V-Day.
How is your back these days?
