Today I was reading a post titled “If I Only Had a Heart”  by Laurie Buchanan http://holessence.wordpress.com/2012/08/28/if-i-only-had-a-heart/ and as several of us posted our comments it reminded me of a poem I wrote eight years ago.  I have been asked to post it.  So here it is.

CRYSTAL TEARS
 By Ann Marquette

It has been so very long
Since tears have flowed freely

As each tear cannot find its way free
It crystallizes within this heart of mine

So many times I feel the pain
Of the crystal tears piercing my heart

I wonder how long will it be
Before the pain is washed away

What will it take to melt these crystal tears
Allowing them to flow freely once more…
