Penny for your thoughts

For week #70 of Haiku Horizons, the word prompt was ‘tear’. For some reason, the English new wave band Tears for Fears (founded in 1981) came to mind, but they did not affect the resulting haiku. LOL.

This week’s haiku is about being a shoulder to lean on, being there for friends and family, and being a kindred spirit.

Penny for your thoughts
A tear for every sorrow
A hug for your fears
