Tears

A lone tear escapes my eye.

And for a moment, I was happy.

I was happy because for once,

I was able to cry.

I momentarily forgot

What I was crying about

And focused on

The tears staining my cheek,

Like water drenching a withered plant

With a new-found life.

And in that moment

I was able to say

That I’m still alive

Because I’m crying.
