The Tender Side Of Me

There is a side of me that shows,
At moments that surprise,
When I am least expecting them,
Hot tears can fill my eyes.

 Sight of our flag high up above,
While blowing in the breeze,
Can bring a lump deep in my throat,
And hot tears  I must squeeze.

The sudden loss of loved one,
Or even just a friend,
The knowledge that their road
 is done,
That they have reached the end.

Happy thoughts or sad ones,
Both touch my tender side,
And bring forth tears
not held in check,
No matter that I’ve tried.

I can’t change feelings deep within,
Nor hide the tears you see,
Because some things just overwhelm,
The tender side of me.

There are really no words that can be
spoken to soften the sorrow or lessen the loss
that is felt from losing someone close to us.

This is done  in memory of a dear
cyber friend "Mack" who passed away
on August 9th, 2005.
Mack, God bless his soul, will live
in the lives of all who knew him.
