tears in our tea

We women of words
Want to weep while we drink
In resolute silence
We sip, sigh, and think

We women of words
Steeped in sadness still sit
Watching wide windows
As sunset is lit

We women of words
Remain rooted right here
While walking the waves
Are the ones we hold dear

We women of words
Taste the salt of the sea
For the sailors we love
Are the tears in our tea.
