A Tear of Joy

A small drop
so simple and clear
a crystal
new born tear
water and salt
it ran down
never before
did a tear taste so sweet
never before
did the salt taste right
and it's source
those old dark eyes
they gleam
they sparkle
they're new
they're precious
they're gems
that poured out
one simple drop
and it ran down
over the pale skin
stretched thin
streaked a trail
flowing to the taste
it's sweet flavor
I wanted to savor
it was shed for you
in a new way
without hate
without evil
without pain
and I will cherish it
