Tears

Evoked by waning years.
Aroused by haunting fears.
Raised by blazing biers.
Shared by our peers. Tears!
Evoked by a good cry.
Aroused by a failed try.
Raised by a moist eye.
Shared by those who die. Tears!
Evoked by books I've read.
Aroused by someone dead.
Raised by what tongues said.
Shared by those who wed. Tears!
Evoked by searing pain.
Aroused by morning rain.
Raised by flowers lain.
Shared by the world's slain. Tears!
Evoked by a lost love.
Aroused by a hurt dove.
Raised by a lost glove.
Shared by a true love.
