As I lie in my bed, crying every night
I remember something Grandma said
as she held me close
snuggled against her breast.
With fear and sadness overwhelming me
I’d remember what she would say
“Go ahead and cry, little one, I am here.
Grandma loves you, just wait and see
each and every teardrop
has a blessing that’s just for you.”
Now as my life goes by
and all the heartaches begin
like losing my loved ones
and asking myself why
I’m feeling sadness within.
People say, “God says nothing is an accident.
Each person has a season.
Tears are like rains that wash away the pain
and people meet for a specific reason.”
So, my friend, lean on me
for my intentions are true.
Give your worries to the Lord
and don’t be so blue.
Even if you cry a thousand teardrops
each has a blessing that will come back to you.
Dedicated to Grandma Brinlee
