Tears in a Puddle


Tears in a puddle
Unseen sorrow
Masked and hidden
Covered by a shroud of denial

Cry in the rain
Beads of water mix with drops of tears
Wash away the truth
Leave what will be believed

Under the thick covering of leaves
Lies unearthed beauty
Wanting to be recognized
Longing to be seen

Truth is what is hidden
Deeper than the surface
What we cannot easily be see
Like tears in a puddle
