    I believe men honor the tear in a way woman often take for granted, tears of healing are often the most required be it of pride, sorrow, or mere release, thank you for sharing this gem, Vie

    This poem was amazing. It gave me chills, and I teared up. I know what this feels like, and I can completely relate. Great, wonderful job David.

    Oh shucks, David, this is such a moving and beautiful poem about your grandpa-- I can't help but agree with you-- no shame for men to cry, especially when they are moved to tears because they are so proud of somebody--- your grandfather seems to be such an awesome and brave man! And I sure am glad you were able to finally post this! Definitely deserves to be read!! Sending you soupmail after this-- Thank you very very much for all your comments, happy to read them & that you enjoy my poems :)

    Very touching and lovely tribute to your Grandpa. However... men do cry and so they should. It completely natural and normal. Lee

    Sorry to say,but this poem made me get a little teary eyed.Life doesn't have to be lived by what other people think.Tears come from different things.Joy,sorrow,sadness,love,pride.And if you have a heart full of love like me.Tears do tend to flow.Excelent Poem!!
