Tears In a Tea Cup

Tears In a Tea Cup

Where did you go?
I am alone.
Tears gather in a tea cup.
The cat won’t drink from the saucer.

I see your scrawl
across the page.
You knew me
that long time ago.

I hear your drawl.
Doesn’t matter what the words,
in my ears
they were all true.

Kindness, you spoke of
simple, sweet kindness.
Something died.
The challenge was in living it.
