When Tears Flow You Never Know

When Tears Flow
from top to toe
Even Niagara Falls
stop for a moment
to share my tear
add on its fragrance
as memories also refreshes
times gone by

O what a life
full of digression
gets washed away in a moment

then Niagara asks
O friend what happened
never mind let tears flow
they wash away all past and present
to pave a new way for the future
this now comes as a new pleasant

Niagara moves on slowly
sadly for a moment
then conveys to me
'Life is Like a River'

let it flow will thee
there is nothing left to worry

Time is in no hurry
glow let tears flow
slowly gradually
Abide with me

I am like thee
flowing along with Time
since centuries
nothing can
nor has ever tried
to stop me

keep moving
wash your eyes
with a new perfume

You as a soul
are truly lovely...

''A lovely musing on the ways we can ameliorate suffering
by trying to focus on the beauty and cycles of nature.

Pain is a constant,
but so is beauty.
Nice work on this.

Hi lovedly, wonderful reflection on the cycles of life and Nature. As Heraclitus said, "you can never bathe twice in the same river".
The title and contents are fine, but, as usual, I believe some joining together of verses would make the flow of the river smoother.
Enjoyed, Gracy
