Tears

There are times when tears must fall.

There are times when the sun must hide behind the clouds

and sadness wraps itself around the soul with a tight embrace.

These are the times when the heart is preparing to open

and reveal a light so bright that tears dry into a smile,

the sun peeks out from the clouds and sadness gently releases its grip

so happiness can take its place.

There are times when tears must fall.

~ Me


Just my thoughts.

Powerful words to open the heart through tears of compassion, Jill. I hope this was as healing for you to write as it was as healing for me to read.
