I met three tears yesterday

I met three tears today,

To hold them at bay
I struggled so much;
Yet they sneaked through anyway
One 
   Trickled down 
       her cheek  so pale
     
Lost,
In the welcoming folds 
Of my careworn saree
The next 
    found its way 
         To her quivering lip
  
A dew,
On a tender flower-tip,
I gently kissed it away
And the third, 
    didn’t dare leave 
       The  safety of her doe-eyed lids
Glistening,
Like a diamond in the light.
I clutched her to me really tight!
Ah I met three tears today
A rain, a dew and a diamond
They did what words couldn’t do.
Bound us in an unwavering bond….
