Topic: TEARS - (as in crying) (10/04/04)

TITLE: Regardless of How We Use Them

A tiny baby knows a tear
Will bring a caring nanny,
A toddler knows his crying eyes
Will often get him candy.

A teenager’s rather certain
That her tears will break her daddy
A young lady’s very much aware
Her tears drive boyfriends batty.

A bride’s tears just cannot compare
To the tears her mom is crying,
And hospitals mop up countless tears
From bedsides of the dying.

But regardless of how we use them,
One thing is for certain,
Our God can see and feel our tears,
And He knows when we’re hurtin.’

Great poem--short & sweet and an enjoyable read. I would just recommend reading the poem outloud and fixing some of the lines where the "beat" is off. For example--"A teenager's rather certain" line does not match the overall rhythm of the poem.
All in all great stuff though! God bless.
