These Tears I Cry

these tears i cry
pour down like rain
covering my cheeks
as they run down my face
know one can really see
the pain hidden deep within
buried deep in my heart and soul
these tears burn and sting
as they pour out
trying to release all of my
pain and fears that i have locked away
wanting to know more about me and my past
but always running into obstacles that last
crying myself to sleep
never knowing if the closure i seek
will come in the mail
or as your knock on my door
searching for you on the internet
even through my home state's adoption agency
wondering why you gave up
when we loved you so
oh mother.....is there anyway
you can ever dry these tears i cry

I know how tears can be as grains of sand on the endless beach of your life. Wishing you the answers you seek, the drying of your tears, and so much happiness. Thinking of you always, Lesa
Your words have pulled upon my heart. So loving.. so tender.. so longing to know. I wish a magic wand I could wave and fulfill your hearts desire. Lovely Grace your name fits you so well. For you have graced our heart with your words.
This poem is so sad, yet touching, and personal. I do wish one day for you to find your mother, I honestly would die without mine. She's out there somewhere, I wish I could find to words to heal your tears and help you find her. I'll keep you in my prayers. Love, Sugar B.
