"Just One Tear" by Colleen

(To a very special person in my life, who was there, exactly when I needed them.)

Just one tear
My heart beats stronger
Just one breath
That reaches my soul

Just one word
Not spoken in silence
Just one thought
From a moment of truth
Just one person
Not afraid to give
Just one life
Offered another chance to live
Just a little touch
That melts away some pain
Just an understanding
You may not be to blame
Just one prayer
Answered at last
Just one child
Released from her past
Just one voice
Loud enough to hear
Just one hope
Just one tear.
