Tears fall

My tears fall with heavy sobs 
         I reach for anyone to hold 
                No one is around . . . but You are.

You never leave me crying alone
         When I see no one, 
                 You are there

Tenderly You reach out to my hurting heart
          Gently wiping away the tears
                   Comforting my weary soul

Why do I look to any one else?
          They are never there when I am In need
                    . . . But You are!

Time and time again, You 
          Remind me to look only to You 
                    and not to others

In Your presence I feel warmth,
          Peace and assurance that all is well.
                    Something I don’t feel anywhere else

You allow me to cry, You don’t condemn 
         Me for doing so. 
                    You chase away my fears.

I try to stand strong, holding to what Your Word tells me
         But after the long grueling day is done, 
                    I collapse from the stress that has worn so heavy upon me

I am not strong, as I long to be,
         Without You I could not have 
                   Gone as far as I have.

So when I fall from the strain 
         I know You are there, not condemning me but
                    Comforting me, picking me up and guiding me

Because of Your love and compassion
        Is why I am still
                    Quietly I sit listening 

To what You have to say to my spirit
         Warmth pours over me
                      I feel loved more than I ever have.
