Tears Don't Come From Heaven

Tears don't fall from heaven-They come from our souls


Tears don’t fall from Heaven

They come from our hearts

Hope and Trust, and finding love for who we are.


Tears don’t fall from heaven

They come from our souls

As we are pushed and shoved and we forget who we are.


Tears pour from heaven

Heaven lost me as angels sing

I stumble to get back up

But have been stripped of what I thought I believed


The tears from heaven wash away the tears on my cheek

I close my eyes to hold back the tears-

For if they escape I believe I will lose me.


Heaven help me- decide where to go

If anyone is listening

I could use a wish or some hope


I know I am not found

Even if I am not completely lost

Heaven please help me-

Make my way from the dark


It truly is not fair-

That if I have worked so hard

To not have a single soul care about what I hold in my heart


Worth more than what is offered

Not given a single thing

Heaven if you could help me

I could sure use a little break.


Tears don’t come from heaven

They pour out of our hearts

But as the tears run out

Emptiness takes over who we are


Please don’t let me run out

Of this fear or of this pain

Because I know I am still okay-

As long as I am still praying things will change

The title of your hub caught my attention. I wrote a poem "Heaven's tears" It was based on the story of my daughter. She had a bad relationship.She was a battered woman and that is putting it mildly.Her last episode put her in the hospital. But heaven heard my fervent prayer.A knight from the west came into her life.....

I love your photos along with this poem. It is very touching. If one runs out of tears, it can often leave the soul feeling dry. Tears can help cleanse ones soul to see things a bit more clearly. Almost like that much-needed summer rain, after too much heat. : )

Ahorseback- thank you-I am glad you like the pictures. I am working on getting some of my pictures marked and displayed... about a year ago another huber (daniel carter) sent me some of his original mp3 compositions- I had been compiling my photos to go along with the music-but lost all the work I had put into it when life took me on an unexpected ride. I began once again working on things and hope to finish by months end and send the video to daniel for youtube. (I have been into photography for about 13yrs/ I ran my own studio back in 1998 to 2002...so I do have many published pieces :) it is one of the loves of my life :)

On second note- I'm glad you liked the poem too!

Silentreed-thanks for reading and sharing that part of your story... thank goodness your daughter has found a second path. I have been where she has been and it is a scary way to live life. Not really what I consider to be living at all-more like going through familiar motions just inorder to survive.

Shygirl2- thank you for the compliment and for reading- I completely agree with your comment, we need our tears. They are apart of or emotional nature- we would be less than human without them.

Hey Holly, I'll keep my "religious" ideology to myself, because I don't want to ruin your beautifully written words. I would like to let you know, I care and will always be willing to help you shed your tears, and fears. It is always a pleasure to see you making ground on who you are and what you think. You continue to grow as a person and that by itself is a beautiful thing. As a friend, it is my duty to always be available for you, whenever you need someone. I've learned quite a bit about you through your writing and honored to be even a small part of your life. Peace be with you. My friendship will always show you my love. :) Thumbs up! :)

Beautiful heart wrenching poem. The nice thing about tears is they are cleansing and as long as you shed them you have the ability to feel so don't stop. ANd God wipes away each one of them.

A tear-jerker (no pun intended) this one, H.C. And so close to home for me. So many times I have often felt the very same things, especially the part about "For if they escape I believe I will lose me". Often times I have felt that if I let go of all the hurt and pain, I would be letting go of myself or someone close to me associated with the pain because that was all that I knew. Now I know that by letting go of all the pain I am not losing me, I am allowing a new me to come to light... the me that deserves and loves the sunshine on her face and in her life. So go ahead, cry until you can't, because you're not losing you, you're just allowing yourself to get beyond the pain to fields of sunshine and flowers. :o) Wonderful hub, as always. Take care H.C.

ALN.

Aeriel_ALN -Thanks so much for your kind comments...all of them, I am sorry I was so slow in responding (busy at work-which is leaving little time for anything else). I am glad that you have taken a liking to my work and find that you are able to relate... we all deserve so much, sometimes believing it is 1/2 the battle...


Aeriel_ALN profile image

Aeriel_ALN 5 years ago from Lindenwood University

H.C - You are very welcome. And it's okay, I do believe that we all understand that life happens... that's why we all have the love of words that we do-- because life happens and words capture it. You are very talented, H.C, and wonderful at finding common ground for which people to relate with. Yes, it most definitely is half the battle.

All the best,

ALN

simply awesome! Tears are quite normal for human beings,it gives vent to our emotions. God is always there for us to lift us from the low,wipe our tears,offer a friendly hand,rekindle hope and bring love and happiness into our lives! I think we should always remember that times change!

Cresentmoon2007 - hi there, thanks for the comment and for the compliment. I am especially proud of this poem...and the crazy thing is; some of the verses were originally written on the notepad on my cell phone during a meeting...oops :) but when words come into my head- I hate to forget them- so that is where they formed. Thanks for coming by and reading my work- I appreciate the support!

Cresentmoon2007 4 years ago from Caledonia, MI

Exactly, I hate to forget them too so sadly enough that often means getting up in the middle of the night, flipping the light switch on and writing them down! LOL glad you didn't get caught! And you're welcome.

Absolutely breathtaking! I have felt this way many times in my life. We need tears in order to heal and we need to always talk to God when we are feeling this way. He is always listening along with our hearts.

H.C Porter 4 years ago from Lone Star State Author

lifesparadox- thanks. have you ever written something and it truly speaks of your soul, your fears, your hopes? This is one of a handful of my writings that truly does this for me, so i am always thankful when someone reads and comments on one of those writings. I am glad that you liked it, and I appreciate the feedback. :)

lifesparadox 4 years ago from USA

H.C., oh yes, I sure have. I have a couple on hubpages and also a few I haven't published yet. Some are so much a part of our soul, fears and hopes, we don't want to let them out just yet...the time will come whem it's right :) Thank you for sharing some of your heart and soul!
