A Tear of Lonely

One lonely tear,
rolled like a stream
from the corner of my left eyelid
down my cheek,
upon waking from a dream at two thirty in the morning.

So realistically,
I saw my daughter
before I woke to that one lonely tear.

It dripped for all of the year’s past,
ran for every day sad,
because her
I don’t know.

The lonely tear rained for distance
but felt so close;
not taking long to dry,
it disappeared,
evaporated from where it’s still near–
my heart.

My soul’s pain
affected my sleep
maybe my daughter sent that rain drop

I wouldn’t know her,
if I saw her face.
I just pray to God that she’s safe,
sound as the five year old I knew.
It was two years later
when I heard her voice last.

She grew,
questioning with concerns of me at seven
without picture or word she’s grown into adulthood

We’re unknown to each other
I could blame her mother,
but instead I look inward

Sooner than later
I hope that tear of loneliness will be lost forever
where tears of joy shall burst abundantly,
trading one lonely tear
for a shower of relieving bliss…
