One Solitary Tear

Linking with Poetry Jam a great place for writers....check it out. :-)

"Man is harder than iron, stronger than stone and more fragile than a rose."  ~Turkish Proverb

One solitary tear may fall...
yet hundreds of voices share the same cry.
We are never truly alone no matter how it may seem.
There is always someone else that has faced the same trial.
Another soul that has been in a worse place.
So take hope by the hand and hold on tight.
Follow where it leads.
Now repeat after me:
I am not alone.
You are not alone.
We are not alone.


  1. As always, lovely Carrie.
    Joyeux Noël

  2. What a beautiful thought, Carrie. We ARE never alone. We are connected with so many others that have walked a similar journey, have had the same thoughts. A solitary tear IS never really solitary, is it? Merry Christmas, Carrie.

  3. What a comfort it is to remember that. Christmas blessings to you.

  4. it is in knowing that we are not alone that i find very much comfort...nice carrie

  5. I like this ~ very comforting and meaningful ~

    Happy Holidays to you ~

  6. ...and it's great you remind us all of that
    Thank you

    Merry Xmas Carrie!

  7. This is a great poem. We are not alone.
    I wanted to wish you a merry Christmas!

  8. Those last three lines pack a punch, Carrie.

  9. Merry Christmas dear. Drop me a line if you receive mail from me...

  10. there is hope in every tear....excellent poem!

  11. One solitary tear may fall...
    yet hundreds of voices share the same cry.

    Wise words to remember!

  12. what an amazing quote Carrie. I think it's soo true. And your poem....yes to the words especially the last ones.

  13. That is beautiful. It comforts to know we are not alone in our tears.
    I am hosting a Best of 2011 blog hop and would love to have you link up a post.

  14. This is a beautiful poem. Very interesting! I reflected, and it is true. We sometimes (better said I sometimes) feel like we are the only ones to face "unique" problems. We are all in this together.
