Grass's Tears

Grass's Tears

A Poem by Alexa Tarvid

If I wait here long enough,

She’ll come get me.


After all,

I came from her belly

She told me

I would always be a part of her,

She will come get me …

Won’t she?


My knees are soaked

With tears shed by grass,

Mud is clinging

To the threads of my pants,


Mommy will shake her finger,

Talk of foolishness,


Maybe if my sobs grew louder,

She will come running,

After all,

I am her boy

Her precious little one,


She should not be singing

With the angels!

She should be singing to me…


Her song scares the monsters away,

The sweet caress of her melody

Shakes the nightmares from their place



If I cry harder,

My tears will shine

Like the grass’s tears do,

She’ll know

That I need her song,

I need her arms,


Even the trees

Are trying to escape the cold,

But I won’t move

Until she comes and gets me,

She will…

She will…

Won’t she?
