Tears may not fill ours eyes physically, but the sadness that abides provides an altered perspective that remains.
Rather than a clouded vision there are things perceived that were always there, but never observed.

I shall look at the world through tears.
Perhaps I shall see things that dry-eyed I could not see.

Nicholas Wolterstorff, Lament For A Son, Spire 1989, pg. 26
