Those Times I’ve Cried

I went to the waters edge

and walked along the rocky shore

The sun was low in the November sky

As I watched the sun rise

Over the water

I found to my surprise

My cheeks were wet

And I remembered

Other times I’ve cried

Years after my father died

in your arms I cried

safe in your embrace

A sign I’d finally found

A love so true

When we lost our first born

I hid my tears from you

Though you might have

Thought they were your own

Through the years

have flowed our tears

as friends and family

Join those long lost

These past few years

My eyes stayed dry

To busy with your care

and to frightened to

Leave your side

Now as you grow stronger

I shouldn’t be surprised

To find the tears flow from my eyes

Now that you are safe

In my embrace

A sign that the decades

spent together have proved

That we share

A love so true
