Its Okay to Cry

Its Okay to Cry

A Poem by Metaphantom
"

Song I wrote for my daughter

"
With every breath I breathe, it's for you,
Peaceful dreams in the night we soar through,
The need for touch, the arms embrace,
That give you love, comfort and grace,

I am your forever ticket so fly baby,
I am that hug after your first step try maybe,
Lift your spirit up when you fall from feet,
I'm the hand to help you up when you see,

It's okay to cry, I'll always be here 
Even when I'm gone, I'll kiss your tears
This is not goodbye, I'm always near
Even when I'm gone, I'll kiss your tears

Since we have now, no tears from past,
We can have tears of joy when we laugh,
Promise me this, you'll share with me,
Every feeling you have I'm your empathy,

It's okay to cry, I'll always be here 
Even when I'm gone, I'll kiss your tears
This is not goodbye, I'm always near
Even when I'm gone, I'll kiss your tears

I'm more than a friend I'm a higher love,
I'm more than a grin I'm a smile above,
So I say to you, cry out for me,
I'll always be here for you, I'm proud to be,

your forever ticket so fly baby,
I am that hug after your first step try maybe,
Lift your spirit up when you fall from feet,
I'm the hand to help you up when you see,

It's okay to cry, I'll always be here 
Even when I'm gone, I'll kiss your tears
This is not goodbye, I'm always near
Even when I'm gone, I'll kiss your tears

Just song lyrics that mean a whole lot, one night my daughter just kept crying, and I just started singing and humming a song, and it just came out, I left the room once she was asleep and wrote this at 2:34AM in the morning.

Wow, really beautiful.
I read and sung this as a ballad.
Hope I wasn't wrong.

Yes tis a ballad
Lyrics like this are more prayers of thanks.. so lovely, real, full of love.. Hope you give your very special gift to her when she's ready to understand.

You've laid your phrases so well, meter sound, words natural. Beautiful.
