    i held back the tears
    for fear
    of assumed weakness
    while the dry season
    caused a drought in my soul

    being strong for the weak
    the lost
    the losses
    caressing crosses
    asking Jesus for help

    tears flowed
    starting slow
    then, you know
    choking
    crying
    screaming
    wiping
    sighing...

    seeing....

    smiling...

    then
    laughing

    because i'm still here.

    praise Him
