Whose Are Those Tears?
--by DaySounds © 2004-16

Please, don't tell me, "Plants don't cry,"
Because this one next to my feet
Is all in tears.

It has not been watered today,
And it is indoors.
If plants don't cry,
Whose are those rainbow drops?

Red, orange, and yellow,
Indigo, green, purple, and blue.
I am not sure.

I am not sure
If those tears are mine,
Or whose are
Those expressions of love.

All I know
Is that while chasing rainbows,
A few weeks ago,
I ended up at my beloved's home.

Her face was prettier than a rose,
Her eyes, more beautiful than the sky.
And, like a rainbow,
When I got close,
She said, "Vaya con Dios."
