A Lone Tear

In the mist of time comes a lone tear- I lingered so weary with longing . . . it was in deep autumn of the year; the maple leaves were burnt red and falling, at your stone cold grave- I stood crying. ___________________________ August 27, 2012 Poetry/Quintain (English)/A Lone Tear Copyright Protected, ID 12-416-516-0 All Rights Reserved.
