What's in a tear?
Is it love, hope, sadness, fear?
I feel it well and mar my sight
I feel it when the darkness turns to night
A sweet warm turn of key
A long ago surfaced memory
I know not why it returns just now
I only now that for now it holds pow'r
Is it the song or is it sorrow
That brings tear from field so fallow
The salty, bitter, wet repeat
Of a pain we relive through history
It comes in pain and love and after story
It even comes with pull of glory
Whether glory or love or pain or fear
It still stands, a testament of humanity here
A temp brand of strife, internal or extere*
It makes me human, one of you, more near
* Extere = Exterior
