[Poetry] A Single Teardrop

A single teardrop fell from the sky.
It tumbled through the air.
It fell onto my hand and surprised me,
When it stayed quite still there.

I peeked into the teardrop
And gasped at what I saw,
Beautiful tales of suffering and dreams,
Of life and all its flaws.

It told stories of sadness, stories of hope,
And stories of yearning to be free.
It told stories of struggling to prove people wrong
And of making your own destiny.

Then suddenly the teardrop became a small puddle,
As if it had no more to say.
Then another teardrop fell from the sky,
And on it went in this way.

Now whenever I happen to see
Teardrops falling from the sky,
I always stop to gaze and listen
To all the stories hidden inside.

  1. Wooow!! When are you releasing your book of poems? No , I am serious !! You have such an amazing talent Jade. I guess you could make it probably a story and poetry combined book? Like you can write a story and take a subject out of it and write a poem on that. You are absolutely brilliant at this ❤

        1. No worries at all about the delay in replies. We all have lives outside of our blogs that take precedent. Congratulations on the dual birthday and anniversary celebration!!! That’s so exciting and definitely a great reason to enjoy life outside of the blog :D!
          I look forward to sticking around your blog as well ^_^ Thank you for the support, Minaxi ❤
