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 which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    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.
