Tears In The Rain

Tears In The Rain


Lord in heaven, I beseech thee;

Lift this curse from my heart.

My true love doth love another,

‘Twas she who chose to part.


I have remained lost and alone,

For nigh these many years.

And though I walk amongst the throng,

They cannot see my tears.


Amid the clamor of despair,

Can any hear my pain?

Tears of a single broken heart,

Are as tears in the rain.


Have mercy Lord, upon my soul,

Or let it now depart.

I cannot live another day

With shackles on my heart.


For if true love comes only once,

What shall become of me?

How can I face the coming years

With naught but memories?


Should my plea find no sympathy,

These words will be in vain;

If poems penned by broken hearts,

Are like tears in the rain.


But Lord, thou art the only one

Who knows what I have borne.

The burden of this broken heart

Hath left my soul forlorn.


Thus I shall beg of thee each night,

Until my final breath;

That in thy mercy, thou wouldst grant

My boon of love, or death.


But if thy blessings touch my soul,

Will I see past this pain?

Or have thy answered prayers become

Like tears lost in the rain?

Such a beautiful write!  Your heart speaks to the divine.  How is it that such pain allows us to become so versed within the realm of the spirit.  Tears in the Rain...a wonderful title.  Thank you  loretta

This poem was so heartfelt! I'm sorry I was not around to read and comment of this piece of art written by you! These words are so creative within your heart! I pray since you have found your true love. I pray God has blessed you once again with the ability to taste upon love's sweet bliss. If not, be patient..In the right time, God has a plan. Just trust upon Him and He will bring her into your life! Your heart is beautiful and you deserve to be shown that you are truly loved by your soul mate..


Remember God's timing is always on time!

God Bless You

I hope this isn't indicative of true life for you.  Sad, yet searching in the right place.  I agree.... another great poem     Gene

This is a very powerful write and very well expressed.  You did a wonderful job of expressing your emotions.  I really can feel the emotional pain you are going through through the verses you so skillful constructed to speak to me the reader.


I especially like the verse, But if thy blessings touch my soul, Will I see past this pain?  Or have thy answered prayers become Like tears lost in the rain?  You really did a wonderful job and it is well wrote publishing - I am glad that I am the 1st to make a comment on this wonderful write!   I myself give it an award for tears of sadness pouring from inside your heart and soul!
