My heart has been broken,
My heart has been filled with joy.

My heart has been played with,
As if it were a toy.

My life has been shaken by grief and strained,
My feelings discarded as if they were spare change.

I’ve lain my head in sorrow,
I’ve lain my head in pain.

I’ve felt like I was suffocating,
And would never breathe again.

I have been up,
Lord knows I have been down.

I have smiled,
And I have frowned.

Some have asked me, “What’s in those tears?”,
Many times I couldn’t answer because even I was not clear.

Science says its water, electrolytes, mucus, fat, and proteins,
Some even say their purpose is to moisten and clean.

I guess that could be true because after I let them go, it helps me,
Or they even leave me feeling lighter and more much free.

I could talk forever about all the times I cried,
But the one thing I can tell you is the Father’s been by my side.

He is always there to answer my every cry and call,
Because He is the one who loves me and catches every tear that falls.

I am an educator, a wife of 24 years, and mother of three beautiful children. I have taught the word of God to all ages and love to share it in creative ways. I've always had a passion for written expression. Over the years, I have documented my personal thoughts and prayers. Poems, devotionals, worship songs, and more have come from my life experiences. Now, I am ready to share them with the hope that lives and hearts will be changed as well as greatly blessed. I am flawed but striving for perfection in Christ. Although I have fallen short of the glory of God, I am forgiven. I am loved with an everlasting love. I am FREE!
