Upon my fingertip today
I caught a tear.
I pondered all the meaning held within its bounds,
sparkling with all the love of many a past year.
Listen very closely and hear the sorrowed sounds.
My tears are those of missing you, a void that's never filled.
From day to day I'm at a loss, not knowing what to do.
My heart's a rocky soil, parched and untilled.
My thoughts are often afar but mostly are of you.
I caught a tear today upon my fingertip.
I strained to see the memories that you've left me.
Your name and all you are and were rest upon my lips.
Someday I know I'll see you; wait and see.
I have so many tears; I know I'll never run out.
Each one I catch I'll be thinking of you no doubt;
so wait for me in heaven until we meet again.
