Tears fall
at such unexpected moments
of realization dawning
discovering yet one more time
that you will not be there

Sweet release
this letting go of pain

yet wondering still
where the difference might lie
between trust and expectation

Odd, the complications
brought about by definition

They say the answer lies
in letting go desire
but without desire
to stoke the fires of heart
what meaning can remain
to make these many pains worthwhile?

and what the meaning of these tears
that fall so unexpectedly?
