Let Me Cry

I cry for what will never be
I cry the tears that none can see
I cry for what’s become of me
I cry

I cry for what I’ll never taste
I cry for love that’s gone to waste
I cry through smile that I must paste
I cry

I cry for life that passes by
I cry for reasons God knows why
I cry because I long to die
I cry

I cry for those who have no life
I cry for those embroiled in strife
I cry for pain that twists like knife
I cry

I want to cry some other tears
The ones that show I’m safe from fears
The ones that come from wealth of years
I want to cry

I want to cry when love has won
When bodies of us two are one
When time itself has come undone
I want to cry

Let me cry….

    My dearest Eileen, God has an amount of tears to distribute to people but the vast majority of them never take their share, only the people with tender and kind hearts take their share and the share of others as to do God's will! Cry my dearest for your tears cleanse your soul and the souls of others! Excellent work! Love it!

    Thank you, my dear sweet Dr Upma... :) I will smile for you. I've been under some pressure due to various reasons. The summer season has ended and I just gave in my grades...I have a month almost to catch my breath. I will try to smile more and cry less. Hugs

    It is hard for me, Justin. There are so many things I want from life....and as I age...I fear that they are slipping through my fingers. I can't leave this world...without achieving my dreams. I'm a silly woman, I know, but....I need to dream. I'm very emotional...and I do weep tears of joy at times. I wish there were more times like that. Thank you for your visit, Justin. Hugs

    Arthur....You know where to find me! ;) I'm in LEBANON! I do believe that is rather far away from where you live, my dear. Thanks for the sentiments though...very sweet!

    As a teacher, I find that repetition is very much part of my psyche. Reminders of what is important. It slips into my work as well. Thanks, Ilene for the visit. You are a sweetie pie! Hugs!

    Crying is good for us. It helps us heal. It is much like a good rain storm. Fresh, Anew. Bad as it sucks to go through trying times, when they end, we feel so much better. It is brave to write about these times. People used to give me crap about writing "depressing poems"..not knowing that they were part of the very reason why things were so gloomy:) I just posted one written during some really tough times, called smeared mirror. Misery makes for good writing sometimes. "Let me cry" is poignant.

    Yes, it can be therapeutic. I don't like the puffy eyed look, though. People get after me for depressing poems and posts as well. That is part of who I am, though, and they need to be able to deal with it. Thank you for understanding and for visiting...JS.

    This amazing write shows life yet lives in you vibrantly. You cry for ever more a happier life and nothing wrong with that at all my friend. Myself, I have done that before and it is a hard thing for a man to admit often. You that have so very much to offer should be rejoicing in your great talents and gifts. Do not let dark clouds block out that light. Fantastic write my friend, just fantastic!!

    I need to give you a new name, Robert. I dub you Barnabas....Son of Encouragement, for you always have such encouragement to share with me. I'm blessed for it. Thank you so much.

    This has come at a very emotional time. My dear friend Theo, a Cypriot was buried yesterday and I cried shamefully for my loss, then I cried for his lovely family's loss. Tears are so private sometimes. I hope that I don't shed tears for your passing for a long, long time, Eileen.

    Oh...my sympathy to you for your loss. Death is painful...but a better day is coming. There is NOTHING shameful in crying for the loss of a loved one...It's part of the healing process. I plan on being here for a while! I have my good and bad days. Last two days were particularly difficult, but I feel better now after I've had a good cry. Thanks for the visit. O Theos Mazi sou!
