Bottle of tears


Psalm 56:8 tells us “God collects our tears in a bottle”.

My bottle of tears overflows

I wish you beautiful tomorrows

Though I may not be a part of it

My face will be brightly lit

When you find your best fit

May your life be filled with delight

You became distant to undo the damage

I felt like a rotten cabbage

The stench of abandonment lasted long

The weight of sorrow, strong

My heart had embraced a pack of lies

You’d been trying to sever the ties

I couldn’t keep up with your pace

I’ll surely miss seeing your face

Though we had stopped the chitter-chatter

I didn’t want our friendship to shatter

I felt an uncanny bonding to you

It was an affection out of the blue

It wasn’t just friendship, but a deep love

This feeling of emptiness, you’ll never know

Deep inside, I wept each day

If only, I could’ve had my way

My heart’s moaning was incessant

I needed a potion to be pleasant

If we ever cross paths, please don’t ignore

My emotions are contained, I’ve shut that door

God has promised to collect my tears

As long as life endures

May there be an end to your strife

I wish you the very best in life!
