Cry

“and when I cry, I cry not because of the pain
I cry because of the many times I wish you were
beside me.”

It has nothing to do with you, with what you did or did not do. It’s a cry of relief, a cry of sigh, and a cry of “coming home.”

It’s a cry for all the times I believed I was right (but was wrong). A cry for the many times I messed up (but you were never there to say “it’s ok”). A cry for the moments I was brave (but I was really scared). A cry for many occasions I was numbed (but feeling the pain). A cry for all the times I needed help (but you were not around).

It’s a cry for all of my successful events and milestones and for the many times I sure did good (you failed to witness).Β  A cry for all the wonderful opportunities (you missed).

I cry my love because it feels so good to be home, in your loving arms.

A homecoming cry is how I want to call it.

      thank you for saying that Sadje.. it is my goal to make people understand that crying is never a bad thing, nor crying is limited to and for all of our pains and hurts.

      I agree kate… we can cry even when we are happy and it’s really totally okay to cry to pour our heart out.

    I cry a lot Mich, but I’m used to my emotions flowing out through my broken tear-ducts, and I cope ok…I’ve always an extra box of tissue by my side…
    I find the tears never stop, they just have longer dry spells between the showers……..

  12. A good cry is indeed a coming home. It is as therapeutic and important as a good laugh. Your post is so beautiful describing it all.
