Tears

When our hearts are hurting our tears will fall.
When life seems grim we must be strong.
We walk a lonely road that no one else knows.
Never at peace are we with empty souls.

Tears begin to fall....

The nights are lonely the days are long.
My heart is empty and my dreams are gone.
It hurts to breath and my thoughts grow cold.

Tears begin to fall....

In my darkest moment I see a light.
I’m in a wonderful place now filled with delight.
I begin to realize it will be alright.
I know my faith is strong now, but the pain isn't gone.
I thought hope was lost I thought I was done.
But just in time I saw love was not lost.

Tears begin to fall...

The person in the mirror looks back and sees me frown.
Out of the sky I hear a voice, it tells me it won’t hurt long.
My faith begins to grow strong again, the voice speaks up.
I tune it in.
As it raises I hear it clear.
It tells me 'Dry your eyes my dear you can’t see the future through all those tears'.

And the tears begin to fall...

    ''Out of the sky I hear a voice, it tells me it won’t hurt long.
    My faith begins to grow strong again, the voice speaks up.
    I tune it in.

    That is a mark of a sensetive soul.
    You managed to portray it with a fine ability to harmonize words that served the thyme well.

    Your choice of words, simple and rythmic tells me of a strong desire and ability to express yourself beautifully.


    Tears begin to fall....

    The nights are lonely the days are long.
    My heart is empty and my dreams are gone.
    It hurts to breath and my thoughts grow cold.

    This is one good example of what I meant.

    The person in the mirror looks back and sees me frown.
    Out of the sky I hear a voice, it tells me it won’t hurt long.
    My faith begins to grow strong again, the voice speaks up.
    I tune it in.

    This is outstanding.
    Thank you for sharing your work here and keep writing and shining.

    Aziz

    I like this poem and I like the message it sends out, that the future looks bleary though the eyes of tears. A great first poem, I will be looking out for future poems, hopefully that will not be bleary :) 10/10.
