In analytic field patient’s tears are not enough considered, except like a cathartic manifestation or a defensive event. The author argues that tears are a proto-language close to music that moves us, an unconscious derivative that can symbolize the mourning for the loss of the Persona, an attempt of self-centring and, above all, a contact with the sphere of the Sacred.
