The Tears


The Tears

As the tears roll upon my face
I ask the Lord for a smile to replace.
I seek his hand, in this troubled time,
Hoping he'll lift this sorrow of mine.
My mother has cancer, and it really
hurts,I can't imagine anything worse.
The medication is taken,and I sit an
wonder.Will anything else be placed
upon her.As she struggles day by day,
I bow to the Lord and start to pray.
O'heavenly father up above, my
mother is sick and needs your love.
For fourteen years, we've dealt with
this.Through it all we've learned the risk.
Please lift our hearts, ease our soles.
Show us the promises, that you behold.

This is a true testimony and dedication of a daughter to her mom. Your words are very visual, for all to share your inner pain. And yes, your mom, you + your family are now on my prayer list ! God hears you.



Thank you so much! I feel so lost, and haven't wrote since she passed 03-31-09, however I am trying to work my way into doing things I enjoy again. I know,my mother would rather for me to go on, instaed of giving up. Again Thank You for caring!! Vicky

So sad... a 14-year struggle with cancer. Even though I know you were sad to see your mom go, at least now that pain she endured for so long is finally gone. Wishing you peace in every storm... beautiful poem.

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
