Tears for The Unknown Boy

Tears I shed for a boy I didn't know
Connected with him through the Holy Spirit
Society says men are not suppose to cry
Yet God made me this way
My tears spilled over to God's servant Pete
A balm for his broken heart
In that moment we were forever connected
His pain and faith became mine
I will treasure his gift
He walks with Grace and Courage
He carries his head high
Not once losing sight of God's great love
Scriptures stored in his heart have new meaning
God is not a liar
All of his promises have been kept
I am left in awe of God's great Love
Sadness has been transformed to light
Light that will guide me down God's narrow path
One day I will meet this unknown boy
He will greet me at Heaven's Gate
A place where all tears are washed away

    What a happy thought! Listening to the Holy Spirit rather than sinful man. The ending is wonderful, bringing light out of darkness.

    I like it,,, very nicely said, at heaven's gate" AND, it's very ok for men to cry,,,,, my TV just switched over to a prayer channel. It's either a sign for you or my Mom or another family member telling me they are here. You have a blessed day ;}

    This beautiful poem captured my heart. How often I spill my tears for someone I haven't met....just to know their story is enough to care. I love the heart of this poem. Never apologize for being strong enough to care for another's pain.

    this is a very moving poem. Heartfelt and wonderful to read. I am God made you the way He did. Too bad more men are not filled with such sensitivity.

    Thanks Andrea, I don't spend a lot of time crying, but when I do I don't view it as a sign of weakness. Fortunately at this time in my life there are more things to laugh then cry about. I do know as we get older that can change.

    "God is not a liar" this is really strong one and I love this verse very much :)

    This is beautiful. I don't see anything wrong with a man that cries. That means he has feelings. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    The tranquility of gods grace is the power of all tears, his courage is the rock to set new pastures, full circle...
