Tears honor experiences that in their nature go beyond verbal expressions. The crying body represents an understanding, for which the commonplace words seem inadequate or inexpressible.
It maybe the body's way of telling you that it has completed a dance, or an intense journey that can express joy and sadness at the same time. Either way, crying will always be a part of our healing process.
tear drops and songs
(by jann castor, Sunday, December 8, 2002)
for my dear friend, Andrea
We traveled afar so we could meet again.
this was just a moment when we met and conversed.
we did not lose our way, but found it.
we touched our thoughts and all that brought them into being.
and it was a perfect tryst while making a song together.
this was just a moment when we quieted and surrendered.
we did not quarrel, but agreed.
we rescued that time and all that made it last.
and it was a perfect tryst while making a song together .
Between those two moments I took your tears
I have those two treasures living within me.
