There are many reasons why I have a tear in my eye.

Tomorrow I hope to have no tears in my eyes on the "morrow".

The birth of my two sons brought tears of joy to live by.

Many happy memories call; of love, engagement, marraige and christenings, I recall.

Tears course down my face from my eyes:

To say farewell brings longing and "missing you tears" in a haze.

As we fell apart my joy was displaced by rage; as the tears fell.

Into an abyss of dispair I descended as you left, my tears, overflowed.

Sometime later tears brimming as I make the grade for and by myself and so no more tears.

Replaced by self-purpose, achievement, self-reliance and happiness.
