A Tear

A tear was shed today because a boy became a man
A life of crime he chose, alone in a cell he stands

A tear was shed today a family was torn apart a mother
And father divorced and broke their Childs heart

A tear was shed today as the preacher said God Bless
A flag was given to a family as a Hero was laid to rest

A tear was shed today it fell like a drop of rain a mother
Lossed a child her joy turned to pain

A tear was shed today a man was born again his sins
Were washed away he rejoiced with family and friends

A tear was shed today a baby was born into this world
A father smiled as he held his baby girl

A tear was shed today God answered a prayer, a homeless
Man was set free from a life of despair

A tear was shed today as God gave these words to me
I thanked him for the gift of writing poetry

Kind solace in a dying hour!

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
