***a Teardropp Falls***

Poem By Kaspa Richards

The memories of missing years
Has squinting eyes flooding with tears
A teardropp falls
The start of it all

The sound of one single long lasting breath
Breathing life into a soul waking from death
A teardropp falls
Hearing life call

The unfair memories she has of being a little girl
The violence she saw destroyed her innocent world
A teardropp falls
For the child who never crawled

So she mourns for the child we’ve all got inside
The little girl who never was, inside her heart she hides
A teardropp falls
She fooled us all

You think she’s ok and you know that she’s fine
But for all this time she’s been giving you lines
A teardropp falls
For a life that stalled

A crying shudder for the body, knees up to her face
As the raw fact hits her, those years won’t take place
A teardropp falls
A woman sobs and bawls

She’s had this pain alone for years, only she can tell,
Saying the same thing over and over, there’s no need for me to dwell
A teardropp falls
Creating salty pools

Wiping her face with her hand tucked into her sleeve
Kneeling up off the floor with a graceful ease
A teardropp falls
From a woman who wont fall

Two eyes to her future her heart for the child
The child none of us met because things where too wild
A teardropp falls
They where so cruel

Now she knows she can survive with her inner child alive
Sad we won’t meet her but at least she knows she’s safe inside
A teardropp falls
May it be the last of them all
