tears of sacrifice

   When you shed a tear at sunset
Do not wipe it a way-
   It is the tear of a sacrifice so great;
A tear of life's dismay;
It will make you understand
   The taste of the world's pain,
The heaviness of self-sacrifice's hand-
    It is the tear of joy's grain
Buried in the darkness of the earth to die
To grow to a new life of high sky

    Wow, I am at a loss for words! What a moving poem. Such a wonderful message of appreciation. It reminded me of my poem "Those Tears Are Proof." I guess great minds think alike! Thanks again for your comments on my poems.

    What a wonderful thought, Honesty! Keeping the tear instead of wiping it away so you can appreciate happiness when the sun rises again. A poem to remember. Best wishes, Carolyn

    My darkest hour is not my autobiography, it is fictional and someone's biography, Honesty
