Heaven’s Tears

<><><>Heaven’s tears<><><>

Snowflakes fall on black umbrellas.

Grey stones dot the field.

Tears fall frozen to the ground,

Relief my heart won’t yield.

I look upon the cheerful white of snowflakes falling merry,

Dancing down from the sky as if they have no worry.

I look up at the clouds so light with scattered sunlight shining,

And wonder why they don’t turn dark and start their heartfelt crying.

Why do they not turn dark and rain down heaven’s tears?

Why do they not hide the sun as it cruelly leers?

Icy claws squeeze my heart and it’s not from the cold.

I wish I could once again my dear loved one hold.

And when the bugle played it’s song,

Even the strongest could not stay strong.

Why don’t the clouds turn dark and rain down heaven’s tears?

Is it to much to ask that they hide the sun that leers?

Then the coffin is lowered, and covered with soft dirt,

I truly didn’t think that this much one could hurt.

I look up at the too bright sky,

Asking it one question,“Why?”

Why did this have to happen to one who for us always fears?

Why can you not turn dark and rain down heaven’s tears?

  1. First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if
    you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head
    before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind
    in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing
    but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Kudos!

    • Thank you for the compliment! Something that helps me is having everything done before I write, something as insignificant as a load of laundry that needs to be done, or a dishwasher that needs unloading can make it difficult to focus. Another thing is this: You have to be willing to do it. Don’t make a goal to write so much every day, because the results will be frustrated, half-hearted attempts to fill in a page. This will, in the end, discourage you from writing. You have to have the heart to write, it has to be something you enjoy. Sometimes I have to get a paragraph in for school, and draw a blank, while other times I could write a whole book of paragraphs done, no sweat. This is the whole reason why the books and poems on this site even exist! Keep writing, and chillex, if you can’t write a whole novel than it’s no big deal, try a new idea. I have several unfinished books, maybe someday I’ll finish them and they’ll be great, but that day is not today. And that is totally fine.

  2. We stumbled over here coming from a different page and thought I may as well check things out.

    So good to discover another person with unique thoughts on this
    topic. Really.. thanks for starting this up. This website is one thing that is required on the web, someone with a little originality!

  4. When I initially commente I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added-
    checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I receivce
    four emails with the exact same comment. Perhhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!

    • I’m sorry, I had no idea there was even a button like that for public use! I have one for my admin profile, if it has your email it means you have a profile too. You should be able to disable the emails from there. When you log in at the top it should say something like, “Howdy Shanna” Click on the little icon to the right and then open the “my profile” page. Near the top there should be a checkbox that allows you to disable the emails. I am terribly sorry for the inconveiniance. Please continue to browse this website! I will see if my Dad can fix that error. (I am only twelve and need a little help with my website for issues like this.
