5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

6 He that goes forth and weeps, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Psalm 126: 5-6

A Winter Of Tears


Born of this heart forlorn; fall now a winter of tears.

Torrents upon the frozen sod; consumed by the Carolina clay.

Oh fall now these tears that of a gentle spirit should wholly claim.


Unto the earth in pools of silver they gather and ever so slowly seep.

They in their fullness come now unto the spring to nourish a new seed.

Oh now from the bitter sorrow of winter; to the joy of spring.

A winter of tears shall in Gladness  a new life soon bring.


Fields will someday once again bloom with laughter.

For of this past; of this winter of sad and cold discontent.

Is born now something anew from a winter of tears

that a saddened soul of broken heart thus spent.

heart wrenching write...yet with that small hope of Spring...
Reviewed by Lois Christensen 2/14/2009
A very heartfelt write. Did you know my sister in law in Ohio died Jan 25 and my brother followed her in death Feb 3. He was only in nursing home with broken ankle, but had more health issues than we knew and he is with her eternally now. I was kind of really mad that he went with his wife, while I have to go on without my Tom. I cannot understand God's ways and will not even try to, but the anger comes and goes still since my Tom's death. Tears come often too to me.

The good thing about "winter"..."spring" is always around the corner...we only need but wait.

There is hope amid the bitter cold of winter, that renewal and growth come with the Spring. Well done.

(((HUGS))) love and continued prayer, Karla.
