Melted Tears

I walked along, a path of ice
formed by frozen tears
Packed hard from days gone by
The sadness of so many years

The landscape was desolate
No color had survived
I was held by it's sadness
since the moment I arrived

I looked to the heavens
fell down to my Knees
Please thaw out my Heart
It's starting to freeze

Erupting from The Holy Spirit
Warm tears began to fall
Covering the teared pathway
it melted them all

The ground softened
The tears all soaked in
New colors erupted
Love brought on spring

Flowers and life
tears not in vain
Hearts that are healed
Can love once again

Dedicated to: Russell Sivey, inspired by his poem Frozen Tears
