मीठे आंसू / Sweet Tears

आंसू तो नमकीन ही होते हैं,
किंतु जो आंसू खुशी में या
दूसरों के लिए बहते हैं,
वे मीठे लगते हैं…


Tears are salty,
but the tears
that are shed in joy
or for others
are sweet…

  1. KK, I understand where you are going with this beautiful poem, but I must disagree. When Mom died and my true love ditched me, I cried hard, salty, bitter tears for them. As a matter of fact, I just dreamed of them both and still woke up screaming for Mom. Grief has its own tears and they are bittersweet. And, like your roses, they always come back. So sorry to disagree with you, but I know a thing or two about teàrs.

    1. Sorry, Susan, my idea was just to highlight the difference between happy tears and grief tears. I can understand the situation you have mentioned and therefore I respect your viewpoint. Thank you for sharing your views.

      1. No need to apologise, Susan! You’re my friend, and friends agree to disagree on several issues. But here the issue is not of disagreement, it’s of the feelings that have to vary from person to person and from situation to situation. So cheer up! Have a great weekend 🎉
