Poem: “In His Place VIII”

In His Place VIII

Women in your wayward weeping
Shed the tears that I am keeping.
Let them fall like droplets seeping
For my sake and my safekeeping.

Women with your balming tears
Heal the rift of sin-filled years.
Calm the restless, extinguish fears,
Mend your lesser fortunate peers.

Women let you droplets flow
For your neighbor and all below.
Consoling hearts with gems that show
Caring souls like I used to know.
