With Every Tear That Falls

Sadness drops in
like a veil of mist
as tears back up
until the dam breaks
and they escape
flowing freely
into the sorrowful pools

Darkness comes
whispering rest in me
yet there is still light
and with light, hope
and with hope, peace
for darkness cannot survive
where light remains

God whispers I am here
you are not alone
never were alone
never will be alone
come, hold my hand
and you reach
wanting only
to leave sorrow behind

And, so I rise
shedding my melancholy
to face another day
to raise my shield
to carry on
and I get stronger in faith
with every tear that falls.
