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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
