A Tear
Welling up from all those years
Pain from inside
Fear attatched
Running away from that place
Trying to carry what it can away
Flowing from what has seen so much
Not tossed away
No embarrassment
Falling freely
Not hitting the floor
Caught before perishing
Hoping to hit the shoulder of a friend
Better yet join a tear from their eye
Meeting at the cheek
Hug so tight

Semper Fi

The statistics? 1 in 4, 1 in 6?
...then there's me the imaginary number

Then you understand "Brothers In Arms" and not always in the military sense; and tears alone sometimes are best. At least the well has not dried up.
And if one, or maybe even two of them land on the shoulder of the friend, all the better, since they can make the embrace more intense.

That's such a good characterization of a tear. I had never thought of it this way. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Much love,
