The Teardrop

Down His cheek, it slid
Dropping into a basin below
It joined so many others
Shimmering in Heaven’s glow

Every day the basin grew
Sometimes it would overflow
His tears were a witness
Of the turmoil down below

He sheds them every day
As He peruses His realm
Watches His creation struggle
At times is overwhelmed

Each failure forms a tear
Inward He would silently cry
Wishing they’d turn to Him
Instead of Him being denied

Now victories erase His tears
Repentance, they go away
Those times, tears of joy
Are the highlight of His day

God weeps all the time
Either with pain or glee
It’s up to us how He weeps
He loves you and me
