A Tear From Me.. - Poem by Jack Smith

A tear for my soul, a tear for my sin
A tear for all my frail attempts to win

A tear for the world, a tear for my nation
A tear for everyone's guilt ridden passion

A tear for their depravity, a tear for the corruption
A tear for my people's sad state of abjection

A tear for the servant, a tear for the Master
A tear for the garden He tried to foster

A tear to stay, a tear to flee
A tear for you who cried for me

A tear for the brokenness, a tear for the pain
A tear for your words of comfort all in vain

A tear to get you, a tear that lost you
A tear for everything we've been through

A tear for my greed, A tear for my need
A tear for every mouth I forgot to feed

A tear for my past, a tear for the future
A tear for all the reasons I need to conjure

A tear for my gain, a tear for my game
A tear for all treasures of my shame

A tear for the wait, a tear for the clock
A tear for all the dreams that mock

A tear for my faith, a tear for the hope
A tear for my doubting ride down the slope

A tear for my laughter, a tear for my fear
A tear for all the glory seen unclear

A tear for my heaven, A tear for His return
A tear for all the days of eternal sojourn
