The Tear

If I were your tear, you know where Id be
Below your eyes so you could see.
I came a long ways  just to be there
And to know for me you care.
To be lost in the flood of cares of life
To flow to beyond free of strife.
To stop and start all over again
To be wiped away by a gentle hand.

If there were anyplace Id like to be
Its on your cheek for the world to see.
To let them know inside is a heart
Yes, that's the only reason from you Ill part.

I know from the heart I am an overflow
There is no where else for me to go.
Except to gently flow from your eyes
This is the way the heart does cry.

It has been hurt or broken into
I the tear is a relief from me to you.
