Tear drops lost long ago

 From far away I glimpse their glow

 Placed in time for all to see

 Now nothing but a memory

 God’s divine sheds of liquid gold

 Left in darkness for all to behold

 Wishes taken from a fantasy

 Hopes and dreams cast at sea 

Jewels so perfect they seem fake

 Blinking in and out of an inky lake

 The soul of someone lost from time

 Waiting to live again on rewind

 The spirit of a hero high above

 For all to revere and love

 The essence of a child or friend

 Whose purity knows no end

 Counting them all one by one

 As I hold up my tiny thumb

 Watching them evaporate without a trace

 I seem so minuscule from this place.

To look into the wonders of space - to behold the lights, to feel small in comparison... you have captured many feelings and more allegory to be discovered by the many who read! Soul

Very true! They have affect on me as well.
