One Day

What brings forth tears? Today it was being touched by kindness. I was overwhelmed, and the tears came forth. And then I remember a day in May many years ago when tears were unleashed …

 One Day
 “I hope you enjoyed your day.”
 She said it with such tenderness
 That it utterly broke my heart
 And the tears came forth
 As I thought of the tiny lifeless form
 Of the May fly and its brief day.
 Why is it only now that I weep?
 Why has the sorrow of the world
 And the heartache of my friends
 Touched me so little?
 As I cry and cry,
 Please, God, tell me why.
