Does God Cry When We Die?

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

God Cries?

God Cries?

Does God shed a tear for his lifeless creation?

A Corpse returning to the dust

Does he look down and his heart aches

Or only for the death of his son?

Father, I have no nails in my hand.

But I am still a dead man


Why doesn’t the Earth shake when I am gone?

No dark clouds, no mourning song

Are we important to him?

So Don’t I deserve an angel’s hymn?


Does God cry when we go?

Or he already knows

That after we are gone we will be within his glory

Magnifying the heavens sparkling in his blinding light.
