Tears

Tears dropped down his eyes
His face a mosaic of pain and anguish
In his hands a lifeless body
So young, frail and completely devoid of soul

Tears dropped down her eyes
Her offspring spins on the icy battleground
All actions suddenly come to an end
Applause surrounds the stadium

Tears dropped down his eyes
She stands in front, nodding
In her hand was a new shiny band
Life’s journey was about to begin

Tears dropped down her eyes
The family all follow suit
She waves at the ones she loved
But never sees the returning goodbye
