The Only Tear I Dread


 

The only tear I dread to shed is the tear spent knowing I shall never feel His Warm Embrace

For all other pain I gain is a pain spent knowing I that more clearly see His Loving Face

The only tear I dread to shed is that which carries me farther from the Sound of His Tender Voice

For all other sorrow I borrow is but a sorrow spent knowing that I will someday be blessed  for making His Service my choice

The only tear I dread to shed is the rain which follows the storm of never returning home

For all other emptiness that empties me is but a fleeting line from a pervasive poem

The only tear I dread to  shed is that of a spectator, and not a participant

For even purgatory’s promise of Heaven’s joy seems to me magnificent

The only tear I dread to shed is that released in the bowels of hell

For all other stumbles I stumble are but tender reminders of the times I fell

The only tear I dread to shed is that of resentful defiance

For all other wounds I survive only strengthen with Him my alliance

The only tear I dread to shed is that not spent in celestial oration

For all other swords that pierce me shall be steps toward eternal salvation.
