Be Weak for Me, Father

I see the pain
Leaking out your eyes,
Because your sister
Has met her demise.

You don't have to be strong.
I know that it hurts;
I know that she's gone,
Soon to be coated in dirt.

The heart attack took her,
But she's alive in your heart.
The nightmares may stir,
But don't let them tear you apart.

Be weak!
Be fragile for me!
Her funeral is near,
So cry until you can't see!

Remember her love,
How she cared.
Now she lives in a land above,
In God's lair.

Father be weak!
Father just cry!
Let your eyes leak,
Because your big sister just died.

Captured so well how men in our Society must never cry. Women know this to be a myth and the comfort is in the grief. If one cries, we hope someone is there to hug them. FAVORITE LINE: be fragile for me WELL DONE!
