Men don´t cry
I heard quite often "men don´t cry
though no one ever told me why
So, when I fell and skinned a knee
no one came to comfort me.
And when some bully boy at school
would pull a prank so mean and cruel
I´d quickly learn to turn an quip,
it doesn´t hurt and bite my lip.
So as I grew to reasoned years,
I learned to stifle any tears.
Though "be a big boy" it began,
quite soon I learned to "be a man".
And I could play that stoic role
while storm and tempest wracked my soul
no pain or setback could there be
could wrest one single tear from me.
Then one long night I stood nearby,
and helflessy watched my son die,
and quickly found to my surprise
that all that tearless talk was lies.
And still I cry and have no shame
I cannot play that "big boy" game,
and openly without remorse
I let my sorrow take it´s course.
So those of you who can´t abide
a man you´ve seen whose often cried,
reach out to him with all your heart
as one whose life´s been torn apart.
For men do cry when they can see
their loss of immortality.
And tears will come in endless streams
when mindless fate destroys their dreams
