Crying Tears

Authors Note: This is always a difficult time of the year and as we stop to celebrate the New Year I would ask you to spare a thought for all those who will not make far into the New Year as the suicide rate starts to climb. Love each other and be kind to each other and if you can remember to contact those you know to be sad and lonely

Happy New Year


The tears of a jilted lover
A lover who jilts’ tears of guilt

The grief of losing
The loss of suffered grief

Crying with laughter
Crying: The joke, no longer funny

The pain of crying
The cries of those in pain

Crying when you fail
Failing to even cry

Crying from frustration
The frustration of not to crying

Crying when hurt
Hurting too much to cry

The cries of the lost
The loss of needed tears

Tears of remembrance
Remembering tears shed

The crying of a child
The child that makes us cry

The tears of those facing death
The death of those killed for crying

The tears of the fearful
Those too scared to crying

The tears that caused you to load the gun
Loading the gun before the tears flow

The realisation of being loved
The realisation of truly loving
Hang on in there - David
