Such grief and hopelessness pervade my soul.
Seems nothing lifts me up or gives me peace.
My devastated heart can’t be consoled.
My soul is drowning in my unshed tears.
All hope and joy are gone, feel only pain.
It’s oh so dark in my abandoned heart
Where only sadness and depression reign.
My grief erupts, inside the pressure builds,
Wells up, I’m longing for relief, release.
Yet with the burning lump stuck in my throat,
Mysterious dry eyes prevent such peace.
It seems impossible to even cry.
Experience I’ve never had before.
My unshed tears are killing me inside.
Don’t feel I can withstand it anymore.
I know the only way that I’ll survive
Is letting loose of pain that keeps me bound.
Take time alone to let my feelings out…
No whimper even comes - make not a sound.
I feel the loving touch of the Divine.
Find comfort now that I can feel Him near.
I feel a bit of softening inside.
At last my heart spills out a single tear.
