A Single Tear

A Single Tear

A Poem by wordman
"

"

It seems i have fallen from your grace

i no longer see your face

so i sit to write but the words wont come

 

Tears roll down my face

it seems i have fallen from your grace

down trodden and all alone

no one to call upon

 

A deaf ear has now taken the place

of my god and his grace

though i walk through the valley of death

i do fear evil i feel alone my heart cold

and out of place

 

On my knees

on my face

praying to god to once

more show me his face

 

But not a sound

do i hear

only feel the warmth

of a single tear...

thank you,never let a troll get under your skin,they are jealous
Thanks for sharing your spiritual side. I think many people can identify wih this piece. We all have those times when we feel disconnected and it is a lonely, barren place to be. Your words describe it very well. Nice work! I did want to mention in the second stanza, correction in the last line-should be "call upon", not "call up on."

thank you for the visit,and i thought i fixed that type o,guess i didn`t,lol
I heard someone ask today, "Where is God when troubles arise?"

The answer isn't that God left us... but rather man left God...

And is no longer sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit....

God never leaves...

Just some thoughts that came to mind as I read through.

Thanks for sharing...

Beautiful and sad
like the cries of David
in psalms of the bible
very heartfelt.

I think many people temporarily lose their spiritual side. Just don't worry about it, I think Him upstairs is still there. Just feel a bit of 'love in your heart' while you are in that valley... that is supposed to keep the fear away!
To me it sounds a s though you had 'word-block'. This is very common to writers. Best just to let it pass!
