For a dear friend who is hurting.

Never will I be able to understand;

why it's thought that tears make you less a man.

Society has stated that a man who cries;

is consumed by a weakness that within him lies.


Give me any day a man who can shed a tear;

for it's this kind of man that needs to be held dear.

He is full of compassion and genuinely cares;

it is so obvious to those with whom he shares.


Tears I believe are a cleansing of the soul;

just let them fall, go ahead and be bold.

Don't worry about what others may say;

Just forget about them, let them be on their way.


I am hoping with this a kind of healing you'll find;

know that you are in the thoughts of my mind.

So let those tears go, just release them my friend;

here's hoping that will help your woes soon to end.
