SO MANY TEARS

Flowers bursting
the earth renewed
longing thirsting
a past reviewed.

So many tears flow
white uniforms damp
emotions ever grow
by the bedside lamp.

Efforts given in love
strong men now weak
needing a little shove
for this healing to seek

Angels dressed in white
finding the spirit there
so many tears at night
with so many to share.
