This has the power of a song. I thought, too, of the bittersweet emotions of Mary, the mother of Jesus. You wrote it beautifully.

Simple words tell a very complex story. I feel the longing throughout the piece.

As some have already commented, I can hear this being a choral piece...Well done!

There are so many bitter/sweet contrasts you've captured in "Mary's Tears". She went through it all. This is excellent for the topic. You've done a wonderful job with your poetry!

I loved the lovely simplicity of this piece.

I find that its phrasing and word choice flowed gracefully.
