Those Darn Tears

Those Darn Tears

A Poem by Suelou

 

 Those Darn Tears

 

One of my greatest fears is that

If those tears ever do start to flow

They would never stop

But, she tells me I should let go


 

At times I think she doesn't think

I am even listening to her

Her words stick in my head like glue

Oh, if only she knew all I remember


 

Shed the tears and feel the pain is

Something I just don't want to do

Let those tears cleanse your soul

They might just ease the pain, too


 

I have heard this from a few now

They must be working together

It's not that I think they are wrong

They care, or they wouldn't bother


 

To sit here in this house alone

Just bawling my eyes out

Seems awfully foolish to me

Surely there is another route


 

The thing I might not have mentioned

Something I think I failed to tell you

Is once in a while, one of those darn tears

Somehow manages to slip right through

Sue...honey...all you need is a shoulder to cry on...and you have mine....and many others. Sharing the pain does make it lighter because a load shared by two is only half as heavy. And it does not make you weak. Even the strong cry. It's the size of your heart that makes you a strong person...not the lack of ability to hide the tears.

Oh dear Sue, you pain is so raw in this heartfelt and very sad write. A very outstanding poignant poem. I wish I could help ease your pain.....but here is a BIG HUG as I know you are going through a very difficult time.

WOW! Your writes hit right to the cire, so full of feeling and direct meaning

To sit here in this house alone
Just bawling my eyes out
Seems awfully foolish to me
Surely there is another route
