"Life dwells on the tip of a teardrop" by TJ



"Life dwells on the tip of a teardrop" a Jod [i] challenge

I hold close my words
under a magnify glass
spoken with love
wrapped in
a silver lining
I thought you seen that.


I promised you tomorrows
up over the berm
I offered my hand
to hold while you learn.

A Youth of broken promises
love from a empty glass
you knew the difference
their future
your past.

I believed in my heart
you could get well
but the road was to ruff
the hills to hard to climb
we needed time.


When you closed
your weary eyelids
a single teardrop fell
with your shallow breathe.
At that very moment
God wrapped his arms
around you
and lifted you to rest.
