Tears are supposed to fall....
Tears bring sadness, pain, and joy....
Oil Painting: Artist, Ron Surrett "Fog"


by:  LInda Law

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 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 when I fell to my knees and asked to
be forgiven!

There are so many times in life I have cried. Tears of joy , tears of sadness.

You have lived until you really cried.
One of my GREATEST expeiences is seeing my grandpa like he was still here and just the feeling being close to him just like before he left earth. He just comforted me by assuring me that I was in a good place, as long as I keep on following Jesus I would be OK. Grandpa wants me to be with him when I leave this planet. For THAT I cried many tears of joy! That was one awsome experience!

EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!!!! VERY TALENTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Liana Margiva
Reviewed by Richard Orey 5/8/2009
To cry is peculiarly and uniquely a human act. Symbolically, it is the product of powerful emotions of cleansing and expression. Yet in Linda Law's poem, "Cying," she closes not with crying but with the most powerful and meaningful human act of all: To ask to be forgiven!

What this piece may lack to some in rhythm and cadence is more than offset by the author's reach into the human soul.

Well done!
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 5/8/2009
Wow, such strong, heartfelt raw emotions, like the cleansing of one's soul, beautiful indeed...

God created tears to wash away our hurts...He saves every drop of it in His tear bottle, recording it in His Book. Wonderful healing poem, Linda. Excellent as always.

There isn't anything wrong with a good cry. I do that all the time, but seldom tell anyone about it.

A good honest write!!

So much emotion...I read the other day that even men who are supposed to be the so called stronger sex, cry on an average of once a month...maybe it is our tears that so many generations of men were taught not to show.

Powerhouse poem. You hit the spot on this one. Liz
