When Weeping Falls


It takes the hottest tears

to melt the coldest pain.

The salt that drips to trembling lips

is savored not in vain.

For that same taste of sorrow

that blurs the eyes with grief

stows a foretaste of tomorrow

and hope of sweet relief.

Perhaps it's when our weeping falls

like rain upon our face

our aching, outstretched arms

are fit to feel His warm embrace.
