Author's Notes:  I co-authored this "Tear Drops" free verse poem with my friend and colleague Liam McDaid on October 20, 2014.  Liam had previously posted this one first.  I am just now getting around to posting it with my poems.  You, the reader, may enjoy reading this one again!!  (Gary Bateman, November 15, 2014) (Free Verse poetic format)

Categories:  allegory, desire, devotion, emotions, feelings, love, and metaphor.

Putting down sword of truth 
falling from dark clouds true blue
feelings you draw from the deep ocean
curling waves warmly galloping
summer wind warm and moist
that love glance that moment
 
Emotions floating softly
upon whispering silent winds
kissing golden sands 
wet freshly salted teardrops
washing your feet with love
fulfilling your heart’s wishes
 
Most beautiful I adore
in the name of beauty
always means forever 
sweetly in the end
gazing in your eyes
touching moist lips
 
Love you liberate me freely 
if only one could see this soul
crystals crashing to the ground
rising to the occasion with love
cherishing every moment fully
never saying goodbye
 
How precious shining a true treasure
touching gossamer wing longing brush 
wishing in an everlasting memory
hoping always for the best
making life happen always
showing no fear ever 

Memories of a love so true
wishing a life together forever
embracing each other so warmly
caressing and kissing openly
seeking fate and destiny in life
crying tear drops openly

Dear Anne-Lise, Your last sentence in your comment note above sums it all: "Tears are the noble language of the eye -- from the heart and soul." Thanks so much for your supportive note here and for this most exquisite comment. I know that Liam will be equally impressed too!! We have another poem coming soon to be released in the next day or so. Best Always!! Gary
