The Anatomy of a Teardrop
If you could take a teardrop
Just one from all Iíve cried
Manipulate a scalpel and
Into its parts divide
How much is made of sorrow?
The kind that sheds no light
A sadness that contains within
The blackness of the night
How much, if just a little
Contains a spark of joy
That rests upon a promise
That nothing can destroy
God uses all that happens
To bring about my good
Reminds me thereís no place to stand
Where He has never stood

Hello Melanie. Just re-visiting some of my earlier pieces and drawn back to your excellent poetry. I pray you continue to find openings for your writing. For the last couple of years I have been more involved with Premier on-line community, originally joining to share poetry, but now I co-administer the Prayerwall. You are welcome to check out my page by googling Anne Linington Premier Community.
What a thought-provoking piece of poetry. You have managed to capture some profound thoughts in just a few short verses. Well-written and well-received.
How beautiful, help us all remember that there is nothing that He hasn't already endured to make our life easier if we will only listen and believe !
This is wonderful...especially the last lines. Teardrop is one word and I think it would be more effective written as such.
