Not Worthy of Tears

by Michael


Now death has won and dreams subside
and bile be emptied 'pon the .
Let weeds grow in this solemn place ,
for this man held such little worth.

Upon his grave, no marker set .
Let time erase his memory.
It's best that some men we forget,
long dead in shadows, there he be .

He preyed upon my precious friend
when but a child, for many years
and stole the innocence of youth.
This man deserves none of your tears.

He died and still, the secret kept.
His loved ones gave a eulogy
and praised the man they thought they knew..
His punishment is yet to be.

The God of all will be the judge.
I ask that He will help my friend,
remove the nightmares from her life,
please bring her joy, help her mend.

(tears fall down my cheeks) Oh Michael, this is so so sad, my heart goes out to her and I too wish that she'll find joy and all her wounds will heal and she will awaken with joy and laughter! (big hugggsssss) God Bless You, sweet friend, I cried reading this; all our prayers are with her, sweet friend! We all love you so much, sweet friend! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Michael, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,

Michael, how heartbreaking for your friend. But what a wonderful job you did describing the injustice of what was done. May healing come to her. Cheryl

Hello Michael
Your words were absolutely rivetting and painted an all too familiar picture of what many go through at the hands of those they thought they could trust.  Take care....Sue

Sadly, sometimes crying is all there is left to do. Once again your loving heart and caring spirit shines--just lovely, Michael!
