Mysterious Tears

I've watched TV on and off all day.
This evening I watched an American news channel,
wanting to see how the events of the day were captured.
I didn't expect the inaugeration to affect me like it did.
The tears just keep welling up.
The kind that seem to come from nowhere
yet speak from somewhere deep within.
Mysterious tears.

The same thing happened for me as I watched. When the quartet played Simple Gift I wept out loud.

I like to think of those as tears of hope.

Mmm, me too. And watching them dance their first dance together at the neighborhood ball--I cried again.

I agree that these are tears of hope, of change and what may be inside your heart. I too cried...unexpectedly.

Hugs to you!
