I Am Not Scared To Cry

I am not scared to cry
Honest to God sometimes I try
I think of you and my eyes begin to swell
the pain inside me is too deep to tell

I want the world to see me fall
So they could know once and for all
Yet the swelling will soon subside
It’s as if I never tried

Memories haunt me every single day
I try and try to push them away
If only the faucets would open and flow
then and only then all would know

No one will ever love me like you did
when exactly did I stop being a kid
In your eyes maybe never
A love like yours will last forever

I am not scared to cry
every single day I swear I try
My heart breaks, yet I can not weep
Trying to deal with the peace of sleep

The peace you must feel
I ask myself can this be real
Yes it is, nothing will ever return you to me
This is why I need to cry, can’t you see

Maybe I need to accept my pain
Through sorrow maybe I will gain
Yes, Yes, I will finally let you go
Tears or no Tears at least I’ll know

I am not scared to cry
Because I no longer need to try
My lips are salty from a stream of tears
I am letting go of you and all my fears

I feel hollow and may for many many years
No matter how many times I shead my tears
Just know I will love you til my last breath
My MOTHER so beautiful….. even in death

I miss you Mom………….
