That Tear

It was a tear to fill an ocean,
just one, crystal clear,
contained the pain of yester year,
the weight of all the lies.
Just one, crystal clear,
that tear, clutched all I’ve ever feared;
the weight of all the lies.
Very small in size, but yet,
that tear, clutched all I’ve ever feared
contained the pain of yester year,
very small in size, but yet,
it was a tear to fill an ocean.

    Mike I think you have found that secret place in the Pantoum world that I have not been able to go. This flows so well, and makes complete sense all the way through. Save it for a contest. Charles
