If you see not

If you see not

Tears trickling

Down my cheeks,

Say not to the world

That I do not cry.

One has to know

That tear drops

Come not from the eyes only.

    A brief and meaningful expression about the nature of grief and how mourning takes place in different ways and forms , not all as obvious as tears .

    Your poem reminded me of this well known classic poem from the 16th century-

    By
    Sir Walter Raleigh
    ( 1552–1618 )

    The Silent Lover

    WRONG not, sweet empress of my heart,
    The merit of true passion,
    With thinking that he feels no smart,
    That sues for no compassion.

    Silence in love bewrays more woe 5
    Than words, though ne’er so witty:
    A beggar that is dumb, you know,
    May challenge double pity.

    Then wrong not, dearest to my heart,
    My true, though secret passion; 10
    He smarteth most that hides his smart,
    And sues for no compassion.
