Some days I cannot stop them falling

These tears

I feel my entire body is being wrung

Like a sodden tea towel

And all that comes out is water

When I think of how hearts break

Of how I could so easily break yours

When I think of the one’s I left behind

Never meaning to be unkind

Only caught up with trying so hard

To chase my unlived life

It makes me cry

Tomorrow I may smile

At how I cried today

After extracting all the pain

Of lessons learned

And yet today it feels so sad

And so there is nothing else I can do

But let the tears fall

Accepting it all

As part of the pathway of healing

Knowing that in surrender to feeling

For just a while

I will learn once again

How to smile

Through the heartbreak

Of these tears
