Tears! Tears! Stop your flow!
Stop soaking up my homework page.
Please leave me alone and let me go.
Tears! Tears! Stop your rage.
I am not hurting, like at the loss of a lover,
But hurting at the loss of my dear brother.
Maybe it was 9 years ago.
But years won’t let this hurt go.
Tis’ a wound that cuts to the heart.
I think of you, and it wrenches me apart.
Twas’ like yesterday that I saw your smiling face,
Yet its been too long since the last embrace.
Day by day goes slowly by,
I forget about your life that you once lived.
But then I remember and I cry.
Tears! Tears! Why be so sensitive?
I have no time for crying any more.
No time for wounds that cut to the core.
My purpose in life is not yet complete.
Oh tears, so bitter sweet!
Tis’ a wound that can never be healed,
Till I join you at the feet of the King of kings.
Until then, I will learn to dance in the field.
I will learn to laugh during the rain life brings.
I will hold fast to the throne of grace,
When life’s waves come crashing against my face.
God, you promise to remain faithful and true.
I will choose to be joyful and hold on to you.
Tears! Tears! Please stop your flow!
You've watered the ground,
Now let the flowers sprout and grow.
Tears! Tears! Let grace abound.
