Through These Tears!

Through these tears

By Samuel Crawford

21 May 2008

 

Through the pouring tears I press on,

Wondering if my time will ever come,

I have been waiting for so long,

But through these tears I must press on,

 

My tears flow from the pains of life,

Life is full of heartaches and strife,

I often wonder what I have done,

But through these tears I must press on,

 

My heart cries for the hurts inside,

It is always the last thing to be found,

Yet it is the first thing torn down,

But through these tears I must press on,

 

Something is missing, something is gone,

My joy has been replaced by sorrow and despair,

It is all because something is not there,

But through these tears I must press on,

 

My heart used to sing happy songs,

Now my heart hears words to sad poems,

Why all the crying, why all the pain,

But through these tears I must press on,

 

So many tears my eyes have poured,

Each a reminder of the pain I have endured,

Many tears have obscured my vision,

But through these tears I must press on,

 

Because my tears just pour and pour,

I find that I’m at a place I can’t take anymore,

Something must happen, something must change,

So through these tears I must press on,

 

These tears I cry do not go unnoticed,

Someone is there gathering them into a bottle,

While Jesus is writing them into His book,

So through these tears I must press on,

 

 

 

 

Jesus is my strength and He holds me tight,

We talk before He tucks me in for the night,

He tells me to rest and be, He is looking out for me

So through these tears I must press on,

 

Jesus is always listening for His that cry,

He has a special place in His heart for you and I,

He shows up to bring comfort to my weary eyes,

So that THROUGH THESE TEARS I CAN PRESS ON!!!

 

 

This poem is written, yet may get changed.  I wrote this tonight through some jumbled thoughts and tears.  I wonder if anyone will even read this, would they understand it if they did.  Through these tears is the name of the poem, because it seems there is not many days they don’t come.  It is not always good and it is not always bad, but that doesn’t change the fact they still come.  This is my heart shown to you, if you are reading this I thank you.  You took time for me that you didn’t have to.  There is something I am missing that is the cause of this poem; it could be the end of what just began.  But if it is from God this is only the rough start and the best is yet to come!  Anyways, this poem I will edit it when I can, just to make sure it makes good sense, since it is so late in the morning.  So to all of you who feel this poem, and have been crying in the midst of your storms….I pray that God gives you the strength; because through YOUR tears you have to PRESS ON!!!

 

Blessings, Samuel…The Worshiper with a Word

    I have no idea who you are, but I googled tears because my heart is so broken, I can’t stop crying. I sometimes wonder if God has turned his back on me or it’s trial I must go through. If I knew for sure, I would have more strength to go on each day. I understood every word and couldn’t get through the poem speaking the words outloud. Every word, every emotion is how I feel. I feel God gave you the words just for me. Thank you for the strength for one more day. Karen

    When I found this website I was so shocked and cried and cried. I have lost my handicapped daugther. She died on the 19th of May of 2008. And I seen you had put this on the website on the 22nd of May which was my baby’s 38th birthday. When I read this it was so hard to understand and to press on. But God has shown and comforted me thru 7 different signs of butterflies. Before and after her death. I know it was one of the trials I had to go thru. Move on to teach the deaf where God had called me to do. I thank you for the strength and uplifting my spirit. Believe me I will be read this and sharing others every year on my daughter’s, Stacey’s, birthday on the 22nd of May. What a great blessing!!!!! Janet

    I was really in pain last night wondering why God has been putting me through so many trials over the past year – I lost my dad in April of last year, the man i thought i could depend on for comfort and who had proposed to me got cold feet and left me in the lurch. I went through a lot of emotional upheaval and pain literally crying my eyes out every night in the quiet of my room though i tried to put on a brave front for everyone around me. I so missed my father who had been my guide and mentor and i cried too for the pain of being rejected. I somehow made it past those terrible months anchoring myself to God’s word for strength and comfort and like you through my tears i did press on. The new year dawned and i hoped it would be the start of a new beginning. I met a man who seemed to be a wonderful person and a believer. We would be in almost daily touch with each other and he would say stuff that made my heart jump with joy, stuff that made you feel special and then one fine day, he virtually shuts me out. Doesn’t take my calls doesn’t respond to my mails and just when i think i am past the heartache and the tears, i find myself back to hurting again. I was in so much pain last night i was actually searching for a few words of comfort from God’s word for the aching heart and i chanced upon your poem. I was so struck with your words. There were almost a reflection of how i felt at that time. I was crying and somehow through my tears i did press on reading every word of your poem.I couldn’t stop crying. Yes we have to press on despite all the pain and heartache that seems to pour our way and by God’s grace i know i will because Jesus is my strength and my friend. I can cast all my cares to Him. Thank you so much for your wonderful poem and please don’t change it. It was an emotional outpouring when you wrote it and it is so raw and full of feeling. It really hits you. I am still hurting but i know this too shall pass. Wishing you God’s blessings through the sharing of your poem. Tia
