Brush Away The Tear

Do I see a tear there in your eye -- Reflecting broken dreams from days gone by? Was it caused by something I have done? Or do you feel you’re not my only one? Can I help you drive away the pain And let you know how you’ve not loved in vain? Let me change your heartache to a sigh And brush away the tear there in your eye. Do I see a frown there on your face – Reflecting pain that time cannot erase? Is your love for me now turning cold – Or have the memories grown hard to hold? Come and let me hold you close to me. Don’t let our love be just a memory. Let me stay with you for just a while And help you change that frown into a smile. Time is kinder When you’re here with me. The mem’ries blind me so You’re all my heart can see. Come and let me take you by the hand – Please listen and just try to understand – Love like ours will never ever die – So, brush away the tear there in your eye.

    Michael, this is one of my personal favorites. It came easy though it was not from personal experience. Some of the best writing comes from just listening to things around you..... There are millions of songs just waiting to be written.... Just takes a good listener...... Regards, my friend........ Jake

    Lovely! This poem is very touching and heartfelt. It is probably one of the best poems that I have ever read! Terrific work, John!...Thank you very much for the nice comments!...Would you read my new poem titled, "The Signal"? It is the first poem that I have written with another poet, and I would like to get your opinion on it.

    Thought I would come to your very first poem. I do that when I start to notice that I've seen all the poems on a person's current page! This is really nice. Like Debs below says: it shows a tender heart.

    Andrea, some of my best work is in the early postings. This is one I wrote a melody for and it became a pretty little song.... Thanks for visiting.... Jake

    This verse shows the tenderness of your heart! The meter moves the verse forward in a very soothing way just as you would hope for the content. Light & Love
