Immortal Tears

Are tears
ever done?
Or do they
return
like rain…
Does the air
absorb them…
gather them,
until they
reach critical
mass,
to fall again.
Tears triggered by
the barometric
highs and lows
of life?

Are the tears
I shed
mine?
Or yours?

Are they
immortal tears?
Filtered through
the debris
of countless
autumns?
Purified by
time?
Still
flavored with
the tragedies
of fate
met?

Tears of
Hobbit,
Elf,
Wizard,
Mortal and
Immortal…
common folk.
We all cry.

Tears, destined to
fall
until the great
song is complete…?

I ask again,
Are the tears
I shed
mine?
Or yours?
