I Too Have Tears by Mark Andrew Heathcote

Creative Talents Unleashed

I too have tears counting backwards the day’s

Longing to fill the pool from which they came

Pining life’s first slow, peaceful waterways

Before even, life arose and took flame.

I had gardens in my heart that, was stocked

With fruit trees and flowers of every kind

With dew drops dripping off the bowers rocked

Before, even tears from the depths entwined.

I too had tears counting backwards the day’s

That has seen gardens turned to rubble and dust

Tears, that had laid waste and, made commonplace

Much seen tangled in weeds – choking to distrust.

I had gardens in my heart that, was stocked

With climbers climbing balustrades atop

But now love, their weeping all of them knocked

As though Jack Frost, taken an axe to chop.

I too have tears counting backwards the day’s

But looks like teary days are here to stay.
