One single tear


from the corner

of his eye.


She smiled

in acceptance of this –

his apology.

Sad... that she smiled... unless it was through her own tears. :~) Although true forgiveness (receiving it) and apologies (giving and receiving them) almost always make me tear up too... sometimes while smiling and laughing a little. :~) Maybe it is the release of the weight of the world off my shoulders that makes me smile, I don't know...
Well, obviously you have done it again, Dawn... with just a few simple lines you have penned a deeply thought provoking story. Kudos!

Cryssa :~)
Love your style...

This is lovely, what I get from it is that anyone can shed a tear but are they really sincere or are they trying to manipulate the other into believing they are...Great work!!!

No greater remorse has one to give but to shed a single tear and a smile in acceptance is the sincerity of forgiveness. I love your poetry. It's deep in soul and pure in heart. Peace, Love and Blessings Always, Paul.
