Mystery tears

These are something that I just don't understand
There's no reason and not what I had planned
Exactly what brings them on I really don't know
But some days I wake up and the tears start to flow
Is there something that causes these to be
Some kind of pain that I'm unable to see
Maybe they are just something we naturally go through
As for stopping them I haven't a clue
Not the best way to start the day
Endless tears that won't go away

    I can relate to this - went through a bad spell when my dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer and I would burst into tears at the drop of the hat - am fine now - am more likely to shed a tear when I hear a sad song now LOL. Hugs Jan xx

    Thanks but when I say "these"I refer to the tears specifically. I think i'll leave it as is. But thanks for your input. Poetically Yours, JD Berryhill
