Have you ever cried without shedding a tear?
Have you felt the pain of another when they are near?
Have you cried when a new born baby arrives
And cried when you see that child as it thrives
Have you ever loved someone so much you cry?
KNowing that you will fail them no matter how you try
To keep the pain of harm, of loss, of love, of life
Turning it into joy and goodness, instead of strife
Have you felt the tears fall like raindrops as you smile?
Realizing that this is peace, glad you walked that mile...
Have you loved so hard, that it hurts deep inside
When what you need is a touch, or love that doesn't hide
It seems that there are days when the tears fall
No matter what is good, the sadness removes it all
Crying they say is good for so many things....is that true ?
Good for the soul, good to cleanse the hurt, heal the blues
Lately life brings many tears, as the crying doesn't cease
The wars, the famine, the abuses, neverending diseases
Loss of jobs, being homeless, addictions and dispair
Rarely do we see any happiness, only sadness in the air
I've felt the joys of motherhood, and captured all that love
Praying they would be safe and content as the white dove
Instead sometimes we fail, although it was not the intent
We do our best, still fail the test, tears can't fix the dents
Crying, crying, crying...seems that is what we do.....
The tears do not fix everything, they simply fail as glue
Although we try, the years go by, and I failed you
We see through different eyes, no matter how I tried
Have you ever felt the tears as they drop like heavy rain
Thinking that soon, they will dry and there will be no pain
Have you ever cried so much that there are none left
Then realized that it doesn't really matter; it is all set
I have cried the tears of joy, the tears of gladness,
the tears of sorrow, the tears of forgiveness, the tears
of laughter, the tears of anger, the tears of grieving
I have cried a river, and filled every crack within my soul
Yet, for some reason, I am certain, that there will be more
because no matter what life brings us, tears come to shore
Of all the tears that I have shed, the one that means
the most to me..is when I fell to my knees and asked to
