Are You Crying Father?

Are You Crying Father?


Is that You crying Father dear?

Is Jesus wrapped in prayer?

I know my God you’re always near

I know You always care


Your heart dear God is full of love

Your hands can do no wrong

Why dear Father high above

Must You sing Your tearful song


All creation is in Your hand

The world is at Your feet

Allow this child to understand

 Let not The Truth retreat


I love You Lord and wish to know

The reasons why You weep

Things that cause Your tears to flow

That bring Your thoughts so deep


I’m so distressed to hear You cry

To feel Your troubled thought

So answer Lord please tell me why

Divulge Your true report


If anything can still be done

Dear Father please explain

Allow us now through Christ Your Son

Alleviate Your pain


Soften our hearts that we may learn

Let grace be found within

Facilitate that we discern

The consequence of sin


Please weep no longer Father dear

Whatever darkness tries

Let obedience bring sweet cheer

Let love dry now Your eyes …..

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
