I Cry

Gone are the days when I cry with hunger,
Shed tears of pain from a scraped knee,
No more will I weep for what might have been,
Or times when fate gets the better of me.

My eyes may be moist at a sorry tale,
An irritant might cause a tear to fall,
Nothing will change just because I have wept,
What’s there now was there before.

Problems arise and solutions are found
With or without shedding a tear or two.
Frustrations and grief, weeping our loss,
But they also heal and gently soothe.

Gone are the days when I cry for wishing
For things I once had from so long ago,
No more will I weep for not getting my way,
For pushing too fast, I must now take it slow.

Time is a friend, I am waiting and ready,
To face what is coming, my eyes remain dry,
When the dust settles and we have adjusted,
Perhaps then relief will allow me to cry.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Wow. My first thought to this is “Priceless”. I love this.

    I learnt to stop crying a while back. I still drop a tear here and there, but its gonna be okay, that much I know.
