The tears are flowing like fallen rain
They seem to flow without warning
You try to tell others you do not know why
They are very kind and sincere
Yet they do not understand
Tears are very personal
Something between you and God
Its not that you are not willing to share
It is something you do not even understand
Yet we can hold on to God's promises
For He understands each tear that is shed
Tears will always bring a healing
From down deep within your heart
We may not feel it when they are shed
Yet in time we will understand
When a tear is dropped from the heart
God feels every drop that has fallen
He treassures our hearts cry that words cannot say
And holds them close to His heart
Healing your heart a teardrop at a time.

I liked this poem a lot. It reminds me of that song, Nobody knows like Jesus. It shows the difficulties of sharing our hearts even with close friends and it shows that Jesus never upbraids us in our grief or tells us to get over it. As a poem, I'd say it needs to be more precise in two ways. One get rid of extraneous words. For instance, instead of saying "You try to" say "You__" They say poetry must be clean as bone. Succinct. Every word must matter or else get rid of it. Also more precise in what the grief is. Sometimes, the more personal a thing is, the more general it becomes. Strange but true.
