Tears

by Michelle Dennis Evans Tears on our cheeks Breath held short Babe grown whole No beat on earth Skipped this world Whole and perfect Sitting at the feet But here and now Flooding with pain Hope never lost Truth bringing comfort Peace hovers near Love surrounds Strength overshadows

Michelle,

This is beautiful. Thanks for writing and sharing with us. "Truth bringing comfort" - "Peace hovers near" - "Love surrounds" - makes me think of life and all the ups and downs we have.

Great poem, Michelle. I can tell it's very personal to you.
I think of a baby gone before birth. That's exactly what it felt like many years ago.
