Our Tears Mingle

by sweetwoodjax

Although our tears mingle,
I cannot begin to imagine
the pain that you feel.

Sorrow is unique to
each individual and
each one deals in their
own certain way.

I can weep with you,
but your sorrow is your own.
I can grieve for you,
but grief holds a different
meaning in your heart.

When you need a friend to hold
you and a shoulder to cry on,
you can count on me to cry
with you and hold your hand.

One day the time will come
when memories will bring
laughter instead of tears
and we can rejoice for a life well lived.


Thank you to lynnkah for the great picture.
