Gift of Tears

Gift of Tears


What can I give Thee, O King of kings?

A flower? It will fade!

A lamp? It’s light will flicker and be extinguished in the wind!

A song? It will vanish in thin air!

Come to my garden that I may adore Thee with Lights and fragrance and with the one word: “Beloved!” There shall I give Thee the one only gift I can – the gift of tears.
