The Tear

The Tear

I got to hold her in my arms again, after so many years

No longer of flesh and bone, she’s free to find me

In my dreams…for a few too short moments she’s there

It’s an unbearable heartache when she disappears

I can’t let go, so I hold on and hold together the tear

My mind finds a way to give me what I miss, what I need

So that deep sorrow upon awaking will soon let up

And I will feel real gratitude that she came to me.



About the artist:

Natalie’s primary goal as an artist is to evoke feeling through her words and photographs.  Her artistic journey began long ago but it wasn’t until she entered her 30s that photography and writing became the primary outlet for her artistic expression.  She likes to share the way she sees the world with those who are interested in her perspective.  She is inspired by light, shadows, contrast, shapes, lines, colors, words, nature, adventure, music, and of course, the people, and animals she loves!   She has recently been experimenting with self-portraiture and finding additional outlets for her art.  While experimenting in different directions and following her passions as they arise, she is laying the groundwork for the future paths of her artistic journey.  Her work has been published by Lensbaby, Beyond the Wanderlust, and she is an artist at Offset.com.
