Green Eyes Gazing

I envy your tears
Their free fall down your face
Open and unrestrained

I envy their easy acceptance
To clean away the clinging
Dust of emotions

I envy their salty simplicity
Undefiled by shame or anger
An expression of trust in yourself

I envy your tears
And the lack of strength
You need to shed them.
