    Opening Your Soul

    O pening your soul can bring tears of joy.   When I open my soul, my spirit is touched. I can laugh so hard I cry. I can be sad and tears will drop from my eyes. I can feel happy and naturally high. I can open my soul and have tears of joy.

    I am constantly crying out of sadness.

    Very seldom do I cry because I am happy. But I am now, because I can't hold in such great feelings. I have been used and abused by people all of my life. Family, so-called friends, men who claimed to love me. I would get belittled, talked down to, ignored, berated, and abandoned...

    Don't Invite Me To Your Wedding

    So I cried at my brother's wedding because I was so happy for them. I tried to hide it, but everybody saw. Got made fun of for weeks. I also cried when I watched Gene Simmons wedding on TV. But if anybody asks, I don't cry.

    Our Emotional Cup Runneth Over

    We cry when we're happy...we cry when we're sad. An emotional release that helps people deal with life.       Tears of joy are like the summer rain drops pierced by sunbeams. ~ Hosea Ballou

    Never Really Knew...

    For the longest time I never really knew what tears of joy were. I thought it was some kind of over dramatic grandma type deal, until this year. I missed someone for so much, for so long that when I saw them again I began to cry. It was the most amazing day of my life...

    Have I ever cried tears of joy? I can't remember. But I most definitely have felt overwhelmed by the kindness of others. And by beauty. God, I love beauty. In music and art and nature and in people. I guess kindness is beauty. Yes. It is. The most beautiful moments I've...

    Awesome, But Embarassing

    I cry so easily at a lot of things. I like being brought to tears over something joyful, but at the same time I feel silly. I am an emotional person and I tend to think in moments about this event happening in that particular moment. Like Im watching it from outside...kind of...

    Twinkle Twinkle Little Tear..

    Twinkle Twinkle Little Tear Salty water expressed from my eye Glistening brightly like stars in the sky Bubbling up and out of my inner sanctum Clinging precariously to my lashes.... My daughter was baptized November 19, 2011. I got choked up. All the trials and tribulations...

    Always Crying

    I have never been happier! I cry my eyes out every day, but they're tears of joy! I love everything in my life: my family, my home, my friends, my boyfriend. Every time my boyfriend says "I love you," I tear up. Every time my family shares a nice meal together, I tear up...

    Tears are produced when you are experiencing an overwhelming emotion, like sadness or extreme happiness. It's weird to think we are capable of crying when we are happy, but it happens! Most of the times I've experienced tears of joy have been when someone does something...

    tear is not a sign of weakness,

    it means you have been strong for far too long.

    With You To Share

    Fate has fooled me once But I can give destiny another chance If I have to cry while we dance I would be overjoyed in a glance Can you share a bottle of wine Like tears of joy as everything has begun Can you make my cold heart warm? And let our hearts beat as one Can we share...

    Happy That They're There

    Of course they are, they're much more better than tears of sadness. I usually have them every so often and am happy that they're there, they show I'm joyful, yay!

    Sorrow And Joy

    Being in poverty is sorrow. Leaving comfort is sorrow. Wish withheld is sorrow. Fear upheld is sorrow. Contact with unpleasantness is sorrow. Separation from pleasantness is sorrow. If there is no shadow There will be no ray. Both compliments each other..
