MOURNING AND WEEPING IN THIS VALLEY OF TEARS

I could swim in the tears I shed
but the thing is : I can’t swim
I will soon float on my waterbed
for my cup is filling to the brim

Didn’t you say : you would follow Me
on the Way to the Cross
that was planted on Calvary
don’t look at it as being dross

This is the best investment
you could ever have made
give it a reassessment
and all your sorrows will fade

I know all too well deep in my heart
that nothing happens without Your consent
sometimes though it can be very tart
and You, went through it till the end

Daughter, take up your cross after Me
and keep walking in My Footsteps
that’s how you will win the Grand Prix
without driving any extra laps.

Always keep your handkerchiefs or tissues handy

When I wrote my Poem : "Mourning and Weeping in this Valley of Tears" I knew nothing about Psalm 6:6 written by David. A week or two after I wrote the poem, I read this David Psalm 6:6 on a Christian website, I felt like an inner prompting to open that page. And wow I could barely believe what I was reading : David expressed his feelings in the same way. All of the sudden I felt very connected to him. Rita B.
