ALL OF OUR TEARS COLLECTED IN LOVE- (poetry)

November 4, 2020


Tenderness
Cocooning all around
A life with much pain
Will receive such a crown

All of the tears
Collected in love
Gentleness sees
Observes from above

All of the days
You thought you were alone
Never a moment
Just a breath from His throne

Tender loving Father
I wish we could see
Unravel the layers
Of seeming debris

Things we’ve considered
Of little report
Are the things heaven sees
Receives great reward

Small acts of kindness
Trickles of love
Never forgotten
Peace like a dove

Acts of forgiveness
In the face of such hate
Makes the Father smile
You’re a champion at the gate

Psalm 56:8,9
“You number my wanderings;
Put my tears into Your bottle;
Are they not in Your book?
When I cry out to You,
Then my enemies will turn back;
This I know, because God is for me.
