Tear Drops Fall

Tear Drops Fall

A drip from my hat as it drops to the floor;

Fascinating to watch the buildup once more.

Like a skin stretches, and fills each drop;

Then to the floor with splatter and plop;

The simplicity of a drop, like a sack of water;

Captures my attention; Why should that matter?

Tear drops that fall, like drops from my hat;

Windows of the soul, where importance is at

The water’s not external, but internal as we cry;

Getting upset, we question the “Why?”

There is the answer from a hat that drips.

Emotions take hold as a tear drop slips.

My hat full of water from a rain filled day;

Behind, those eyes, will a drop get in the way?
