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...

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."

Old song but new every time. Your words echo the "silence of a falling star". So many times I have cried out with no understanding. I guess that is where faith is born.
Beautifully written. Thank you

There are times it seems we are really that alone, but I think God is always there, though sometimes just silent. Nice poem!

Wow, a little intense and sad. I have felt this way before and it's not a great feeling.
This poem flowed really well and it was a pretty amazing read.

you are very welcome.
I can relate to this having-fallen-out-of-grace feeling. This is the best and the most heartfelt poem of yours I have read yet, wordman.

it comes natural,almost like somebody dictates them to me
Well Old Terry Bradshaw though a lot of that song and tried his voice at singing it during his football career but the Fans in Pittsburg did not buy it but the Town of Huston TX did the record sold out in every store In hopes the famous QB would retire from this Football Career and keep strumming on that twanging Guitar Well as you know how it went the people spoke and Terry did not sing another note He finished his career as One of the Best QB's In NFL history and made this Pittsburgh Steeler fan very proud of Him.
