Another's Tears
~*Marge Tindal*~

Today is shrouded
with the fragile tears
of another's shedding
they become my own
I sink in them
unable to surface
breathless with the effort
I can do nothing more
than share
and so
I do

Hi Marge,

I know your tears are very heart felt and come from deep with in the soul, you are one of those rare souls that feel deeply others feelings and can truly weep not only with them, but for them also. Gods spirit has blessed you with this quality of love thats very rare my friend and we all and at one time or another have felt it. May God show you the way through this and give strength were you need it.

Love,  Cerenity

Balladeer~
I know you understand.
They fall from the heart for ones I love.
I pray that theirs will be dried with His tender mercy.

Devina~
I gladly share the tears of others, hon.
Never too heavy a burden to hold the tears of another.

EagleOne~
Thank you ... and yes, you are correct.

LoneWolf~
I appreciate your reply.

Cerenity~
Love, my tears are little solace when friends are so in need ...
I hold theirs and pray that they find comfort.  Thank you for being there, my friend.

So many kind sentiments, you have expressed.

Marge, you are so good at this. I am really happy to have found this one fro you to read.

One often cries alone,
Collects his flowing tears,
When he does find a friendly one,
The tears melt away the fears...

If I could be a shoulder
For you to lean, and cry when you are sad,
I promise that I would be a boulder,
For you to hang on to even when you are glad ...


Many regards, sudhir


 In any moment of decision,
The best thing you can do is the right thing,
The next-best thing is the wrong thing,
And the worst thing you can do is nothing.

I'm with you Marge, nothing seems to be going right for anyone at the moment, let's hope that the sun comes out and envelopes all those that need the warmth.

Marge, we are so lucky to have you!   I know you touch the hearts of all those you encounter.

Sudhir~
The boulder is sometimes so heavy for those having it on their shoulders.  I ask my God to take it from them and share with me their tears ... and He does.
Thank you for your thoughts.

Nan~
I know you are ...
and our friends need us all.

Serenity~
Thank you for your tender sweetness, friend.

Hoot~
I know, hon.  I pray it comforts.

KellSue~
I thank you.  I do no more than a
friend should do.  

ButterfliesDC~
I appreciate your gentle thoughts.

TerryW~
My friend ... take comfort in knowing
that friends are meant to be forever.

Denise~
Yes, my friend ... and we all share
in the sharing.

Peri~
This is truly a family of many caring hearts.
I appreciate the response.

RainbowGirl~
Darlin', may all who need us know that they can depend on our friendship.  Thank you.

Rex~
I'm humbled, my friend.
Bless you.

I'm glad you didn't miss it too, my friend.

Kit~
I only express my heart ... and it's filled with love for so many.

*Let each of us remember a friend who needs us ... there are many among us who need our sharing.
Love to all.
