Tears deserve respect. They reflect emotions.
EMOTIONS AND TEARS: haikus


Losing a dear one
Deserves losing a few tears.
Else, he was not dear.

Some do grieve too much
When the person gone has been,
In fact, a bully.

Who knows why heart cries?
It has a thousand reasons.
All tears look the same.

There are also some
Who are not able to cry
When heart truly grieves.

So what are the tears?
Are they a measure of grief?
Or, outward show-piece?

Let us respect tears.
They may be affected but
Betray emotions.
