A single tear
wanders a path,
sorrows get cleared
releasing bath

Slowly strolling,
down her left cheek.,
her mind ponders
answers she seeks

The lonely tear
reaches her chin,
captures her fears
staining her skin

It takes a bow

then jumps and skips,
flying straight down
decides to dip

Her answers come,
one at a time.
Her heart then hums
to inner chime

One tear runs dry,
at last, released,
without a cry
instantly eased
