Little Drops

Small little drops
Fall from the sky
Salty, pure
Tears from the tree of life

Small little drops
Fall from a pale face
Misty, wet
Gray clouds obscure the time

Small little drops
Fall into open palms
Trying to hold them
As they keep slipping through
Pooling at our feet like the years

Small little drops keep falling
Escaping our fingers
Escaping our eyes
We can’t catch them
