Times Of Tears - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

Long years ago my eyes were darkened
From painful tears in sorrow's haunts
Tomorrows boding waves of anguish
As life sped by in numbing speed

Years rolled along like balls of lightning
I could not look at yesterdays
Regretful deeds and fear of future
Kept all my childhood dreams on hold

Then came a night of untold terror
Shifting of all that I believed
A hurricane of sick emotions
Was cleansed and crushed by hidden means

Much water has since flowed in millstreams
It almost seems like someone else
Who cried so often and so sadly
For now I only cry in joy

To what can I give thanks for changing
My life, my love, my dreams of yore
Who is it gave me bliss and singing
Releasing me from sin's harsh grip

Some call it doves of peace or blue lights
Yet others do not question why
I only know my path to healing
Was paid for by His ransomed blood.
