Listening as the rain falls
Making music in the leaves

Washing the earth
Quenching the thirst of the trees

The rain washes away the grunge
The garbage of the man-made world

Leaving the ground moist and clean
Refreshed, renewed

Listening to the tears as they fall
Making music on her hands

Washing her heart
Quenching the thirst of her soul

Her tears carry her sins upward
The sins of her weak flesh

She asks for forgiveness
Needing to be refreshed, renewed

His forgiveness is everlasting
His mercy faithful

As the trees grow
From the cleansing rain

Her soul grows from the tears
Cried for her sins forgiven

Not only her own tears
But the tears of Another

Cried so many years before
Cried on a cross for her today

These are the cleansing tears
The refreshing tears

Cried out of love
Given up so she can be free

its a nice work and i liked the way you developed your msg,but these lines didnt suit me
Her ters carry her sins upward
The sins of her weak flesh.I would like it to be her tears soak in the ground
burrying her sins deep inside

One can only imagine...
From whence such agony and triumph find a soul in which they can dance together so elegantly. Only the blessing of experience can empower us to paint such pictures of the hidden nature. An artist of lesser known art, you are.
