Sowing Tears

I'll cry

and it's okay

to let them fall

and find their way

back to the ocean

(before you get

a fix-it notion)

It's as natural as

perspiring or

sneezing or

coughing out

an intruder

See, the tide here

greets a salty tear

to witness its tells

and knows it well

It's okay, tears

You are safe to fall

and wash away

felt and kept

by the God

who gets it all

Artist: Beth Hoekel

Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the Lord has spoken.

Psalm 126:5 Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!
