Today I caught a tear...




A Tear

Upon my fingertip, today I caught a tear.
I pondered all it’s meaning, held with in its bounds.
Sparkling with all the love, of many a past year.
But listen very closely and hear the sorrowed sounds.

My tears are those of missing you,
A void that’s never filled.
From day to day I’m at a loss, not knowing what to do.
My heart's a rocky soil, parched and untilled.

My thoughts are often afar off, but mostly are of you.

I caught a tear today upon my fingertip.
I strained to see the memories you’ve left me.
Your name and all you were and are, rest upon my lip.
Someday again I know I’ll see you, just you wait and see.

I’ve got so many tears I know I’ll never run out.
Each one I catch I’ll be thinking of you.
For that there is no doubt.
Please, wont you remember me too.
I…miss…you…

(This poem was written several years ago and dedicated to my mother... I feel it needs to be re-dedicated to all the survivors of September 11th)
May God richly bless and guide us all... (Pernell)
