Have you ever experienced the kind of gut-wrenching pain that leaves you completely breathless and weak? You know what I mean – when your heart literally feels like it is being cut into hundreds of pieces?
I have. I’ve even wondered if I was going to physically survive the emotional pain. Death looked like a welcome relief.
I was given the following poem by a friend of mine who is quite familiar with emotional pain. I am still in awe at the beauty and simplicity of the words. My friend so graciously granted me permission to share it with you.
“It seems to me that sometime
The world must be
That tears cannot flow forever
Even from humans
But tears have a way of passing on-
Recycled by generations gone.
But someday God will wipe away
All the tears from
Our eyes.” *
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for that day.
