A Single Tear

A single tear rolls down her cheek
As she realizes that he never, truly loved her.
He never thought her more than just a friend.
The tear silently rolls down her reddened face,
Leaving a wet trail on her cheek.
It drips down her nose and falls off,
Falling to the dirt below her.

A single tear runs down his face
As he hears the doctor announce that his mother has died.
He feels empty inside, the feeling of hope now lost,
Almost like stranger to him.
He angrily wipes at the salty tear,
And smears the water on his face.

A single tear falls down their faces
As they say their wedding vows.
They've been together for years,
Starting as high-school sweethearts and continuing
To college together. 
They hope to lead a happy life together.

A single tear can signify a time of joy and a time of grief;
Something that is considered insignificant is, in reality, very important.
