See Those Happy Tears
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith



I love to see those happy tears

Rolling down a face

After watching performances

Done with amazing grace

Just the anticipation 

Of a loss or win

The expression on other faces

As they take it in


Then the verdict dictated

The crowd is on their feet

Happy tears are everywhere 

As people begin to weep

The performance is outstanding 

Thousands witness that

The joy upon the faces

Attesting to that fact


God has built us wondrously

We are made to rejoice

In every use of talent

Especially with the voice

Some rise above the others

Definitely cream of the crop

Happy tears giving recognition of

Their performance was over the top


We weep with those who weep

And rejoice with those who rejoice

Praise God for entertainment venues

That bring to us that choice 

I've watched some great performances

They have brought me to my feet

I've tasted tears of joy as such

It's absolutely neat!


Then that grand performance 

With tears of joy we'll sing

That song implanted within our heart

That gives due praise to Him

Worthy is that Lamb

That Lamb for sinner's slain

Our rejoicing is complete

Praise God Lord Jesus came!

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
