I'm not crying

I'm the only one

I am the shoulder to cry on,

The comforting hug

If I lose

If I give in to the tears

They all know

I am weak too

And there is no leg to stand on

The only one

Who can always be counted on

To stand strong

Cannot always be perfect.

When even I

Succumb to the tears

I'm surprised

By how good it feels

To share in our sorrow

The hugs don't stop the tears

They let the sorrow escape,

Escape in the rivers being carved down my face

Until the tears are worn out

And there is no sadness left

The ache will be there always,

Always throbbing

But never again will it bleed
