one tear at a time

the curtain flaps in the clumsy breeze

my heart beats down

the coolness of the aging day

appears to release the hope evading me

it is alright now

i accept what came and went

in the treks of time today

my face has become stronger

the longing has receded like the curtain

in that room where history is made

and played out in my head

one tear at the time
