Cry of A Woman

Just because her face is dimpled 
and dry
does not mean her heart doesn't 
cry.
Just because she sings sweet-
love song, 
doesn't mean there is nothing 
wrong. 
Sometimes we need to look a 
little closer,
so that we won't end up being 
the loser.

The fact the her stream seems 
so silent,
does not mean they make no 
clear comment.
The fact that she manages a 
simple smile,
does not mean that her fate is 
so fragile.
Sometimes we need to hold 
their arms,
to feel the sound of a woman's 
alarm.

Love to her is more than shared 
emotions,
she needs a man with dogged 
devotion.
She may gladly accept your 
fragrant flower,
yet she prays to feel your 
loving....shower.
And when she let lose her 
tender tears,
a warm embrace will hold back 
all her fears.

Do not charm her if you are a 
cheeful cheat,
these weaker vessels are very 
hard to defeat.
Do not make her a 
mother...before time,
dumping a woman is not just a 
common crime.
You will reap what you sow... 
someday,
even if it seems she has nothing 
to say.
