Grateful Tears

 

Tears escape

From the corners

Of her eyes,

Trying to hold in

What’s too much to contain.

Gratitude overwhelms.

Without warning,

Without show

Droplets slide

Down her cheeks,

As she thanks

Those who helped

Bring her home.

As she shakes the hands

That took her house

And returned it as a home

After disaster and destruction

Ruined it.
