Tears and Death

Tears wipe pain from my face

Not strength from my heart.

* * * * *

Tears are tiny drops of pain

In the ocean of ever flowing joys.

* * * * *

To the temple she goes with tears in

eyes,

From the temple she comes with

smiling pride.

* * * * *

Sorrows are never drowned in tears

Why do we ever cry?

* * * * *

Eyes that have cried in our pain

May we not forget in days of our gain.

* * * * *

Faith never cries

It’s doubt that sheds tears.

* * * * *

Darkness of night

Reveals the story of peace

Who says sorrows too exist?

* * * * *

No blows lead to death

No pain stirs the soul,

We are brave

The truth be known.

* * * * *

Often when I stand alone

Near the dug up soil,

I feel the grave of the wrong I hold

The strength of good within my fold.

* * * * *

In the competency

Of material rhythm,

Where city breathes in

I know where I stand

They know where I stand not.

* * * * *

They took me in a palace

They took me in no home,

They asked me to sit

There was no floor.

* * * * *

If death has to come

It won’t need a door

It can come from the sky

And take me in best of my health.

Still I close one open

Not with the fear to die

But with respect

To the custom of care.

* * * * *

I saw a candle burning

And burning for the night,

I felt it was sorrow

I saw it was light.

* * * * *

Had fallen from the eyes

The pride of heart,

In the form of tear

In front of all.

* * * * *

We know the difference

We believe in logic

Heart weeps

Smiles the tragic.

* * * * *

No use it is to talk to the air

The time has passed

The hour unfair.

* * * * *

In the magnitude of what exists

There is nothing in infinity

And infinity in nothing.

* * * * *

A drop fell in ocean

Some call it dream

Some tear

How sound the believe

How real.

* * * * *

When death is hope

Life is a tomb.

* * * * *

Near the fruity tree lies his grave,

He who died for a loaf of bread.

* * * * *

Reason to gather

Custom to organize,

Efficient is lonely

Social is life.

* * * * *
