So little and transparent like a crystal
Tear… it has so many strength,
Like a sponge, absorbing all sorrow,
Healing a soul, closed the wounds.
So little and transparen like a crystal.
Someone will say that it is crisp and cold.
That tear indeed – main road
Which leading to exit from chasm
So little and trasparent like a crystal.
Besides able to uncover the soul,
And pull out from heart pain, it grieves,
So it couldn’t, make dirty the road.
