Poem: Red Tear

In the middle of this battlefield where the war is real

It becomes chaos, coupled with fear, for here lies still

A brave soldier tends to another fallen brave soldier who is wounded indeed

For this fallen soldier displayed such courage and bravery as in combats his troops he did lead

Agony and pain from each of the wounded is felt so deep

As these are painful memories that brave soldiers will forever keep

And the soldier looks up to tell fellow soldiers as he holds the fallen soldier in his arms with a tight embrace

As a red tear falls from his eye for the blood of the fallen soldier had fallen on his very face

The red tear signifies a life filled with sacrifice and love

A kind of bravery only given from God above

May God reach down and wipe away every red tear

As he whispers “It is finished and now it is time to come home my son so dear

 

The years passed and the brave soldier is playing with his little girl outside

As she asks to get on his 4 wheeler for just one more ride

The girl’s daddy greets her as he bends down with loving arms open wide

And she runs as fast as she can only to trip and fall on a big rock laying at her daddy’s side

She begins to cry and he picks her up and notices blood coming from a small gash upon her face

And flashes back in time when a red tear brings memories he can never erase

 

May God reach down and wipe away every red tear

As he whispers “It is finished and now it is time to come home my son so dear”

 

Flashbacks become so real and it doesn’t feel much like a dream

More and more flashbacks of Jesus being nailed to a cross, a fairy tale to many it seems

Jesus looks up to tell the two others upon their own cross

I have come to save all who are lost

As he speaks, blood falls from the thorn- pierced crown, a final act of pure cruelty they put him through

Forming red tears that fall from his eyes as he says, “Forgive them for they know not what they do”

The red tears signify a life filled with sacrifice and love

A kind of courage and bravery only given from his Father above

And God picks him up and wipes away every red tear from his son’s face

As Jesus whispers, “It is finished” and closes his eyes showing the world God’s ultimate grace…
