Are Tears Considered Prayers - Poem by Phyllis Strong

Are tears considered prayers
When I don’t know what to say.
My words won’t come together;
That makes it hard to pray.

Are tears considered prayers
In the midst of my pain,
I try to see the bright side of things;
But all I see is rain.

Are tears considered prayers
When the words don’t seem to come.
I try to find the words to say,
But my mouth will not produce none.

Are tears considered prayers
When I know that you’re all knowing;
The trials that we go through,
Does it really mean we’re growing?

Are tears considered prayers
When I don’t know what to do;
The words won’t come, there are none.
I’m crying out to you.

Are tears considered prayers
When I don’t know what to do,
Should I stop? Should I go forward…?
I need to hear from you.

Are tears considered prayers
When I’ve cried all night long;
My pillow is soaked, my eyes are red,
The Kleenex is all gone.

Your word says “weeping may endure
For a night, but joy comes in the morning”

So, you’ve seen my tears,
You’ve felt my pain,
Although my words aren’t coming.

    Are tears considered prayers
    When the words don’t seem to come.
    I try to find the words to say,
    But my mouth will not produce none. Yes tears are prayers. they are the prayers of our heart and emotions, . they are truer than the words we utter in prayer. thank you. a lovely poem. tony (Report) Reply
