Truth-teller




It is such a secret place, the land of tears. ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince 


You are no liar
Though oft we aspire
To veil your
Vulnerability
With prattle of speech
Or laughter, we reach
To quell your
Silver sea


Still, your language speaks
Upon our cheeks
Its common voice
Runs clear
Without a word
Love’s aching hurt
Is uttered in
A tear

© Janet Martin


 Tears are words the heart can't express. ~Author Unknown

 Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Ps. 126:5
