“ A Solitary Tear ” ~ of grief or cheer ~

A solitary tear

Feels incongruous

It appears,

Ambivalent                                         

On an gentle face,

Anxious its presence

Be viewed unkind,

Rather than benign…

 

A solitary tear

Wishing not

To interfere,

With the mien

Of a smile,                                                                                      

Uncertain to stay

The while,

Worrying pleasure

Suffers it be here,

For grief or cheer!
