One Tear Fell Up

Sitting alone in my misery,

self-pity overflowing my banks,

I felt distraught

and engulfed in sorrow.

Sobs wracked my very soul,

as tears fell, unrestrained.

Would no one hear my cries?

Would no one ease this pain?

Life seemd to suffocate,

drawing out from me, my will to fight.

Weakening my desire

to continue this charade.

Moisture pooled at my feet,

in puddles of emotion.

Then I watched, as one tear fell up

and Jesus answered.
