Crying To Tell Something


You cry to communicate, you need something
I feel more patient now and do a learning
You don’t have spoken words to tell me what you feel
Feet-moving, hand-reaching, head-shaking are what you tell

Cries are the words, you want me to understand
Giving up is not the answer to your want
Give me time to think about what is in your cries
High and low, you’re crying a sign that I should try

While you cry so intensely, my heart bleeds severely
Be calm now, my loving arms are now around you
While holding you, I know you are in lonely
So let me hug you and sing a song for you

While everything is done, I give you all the time
To notice the change and feel the difference
Hear my calming voice to know my presence
I will tap your back and pass my hand on your forehead


I will let you feel that the world is safer
With us your parents by your side
It takes two people to communicate
One to talk and the other to listen


You are crying to tell me something
That you want me to do before sleeping
Give me time to understand your own language
This is the way of our own tutelage
