Tear (Dedicated to my daughter) / Poem by Tahera Mannan

Poem by Tahera Mannan
 
 
Tear
Dedicated to my daughter
 
A single drop of tear from your eyes
Shines like a diamond on the satin cheek so white
More valuable than any prize
That single tear on that cheek so white
As it meets ruby lips so sweet
And hang from the edge with its brilliant sheen
Many a heart misses their beat
When it hangs from the edge with its brilliant sheen
Down it rests on those pearly hands
Innocently winking begging to be felt
Incomparable to any in sky or land
This innocently winking tear begging to be felt
So many a questions raised by this tear
A journey travelled a journey over
Much of cheer and much of despair
As the journey is travelled and now over.
