they say time heals all wounds . . . I am not sure about that but tears do change -- some into bitter ugly feelings . . . others evaporate leaving a memory . . . I have read "Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy." my hope, my prayer, is that she will sing with joy one day. A lovely poem LO . . . it gave me pause tonight! Hugs always. 7

Her tears will never fully dry, because her heart is too tender and to harden that would change the beauty of her soul. A wonderful poem dear Lady. love Shane xxx I agree with Mystic Rose, eyes as soft as yours were not meant for tears.

It does, doesn't it? ;) Some dreams are meant to be kept on the shelf...We dust them off now and again and have a good cry...they back they go. Thanks for the visit, Tim. Hugs
