Silently I let It Fall

I love…
…that you are learning not to be afraid to cry and are coming to know the healing quality of tears. Sometimes they’re the best cure for what ails us. Always I am glad to hold you in my arms anytime that will help the pain and sadness pass.

Poem by American poet Marge Tindall
I shed a tear today.
Silently, I felt it fall.
You caught it,
shared it,
held it,
felt it,
then
suddenly
it wasn’t so
big after all.
