      Let Tears Flow -Lk.7:38.....

We’re shy to show the things we feel

We turn our heads and run

We feel too proud that we should kneel

Before God’s Lamb & Son


But God can see the broken heart

Contrition of man’s soul

He sees the truth and sets apart

For Christ to make us whole


Not rarely will the mighty weep

Not seldom strong men cry

For but a time God’s children sleep

But none of them will die


No tear can show that one is weak

But show a heart with care

Tears oft fall when God we seek

When grace and love we share


The times we sing, the times we pray

When hurt, when times we groan

When from The Lord we lose our way

When feeling all alone


To God they’re oft the sweetest wine

Making His heart content

He sees them as an outward sign

When humble hearts repent


Tears! God values more than gold

Than pearls, or regent’s crown

They melt His heart when they unfold

When pride comes tumbling down


Treasure unique, in Heaven stored

At Jesus’ perfect feet

Aroma worthy of The Lord

True fragrance rich and sweet…..

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.
