Sometimes I Cry

 

Sometimes I cry

When life gets hard

My throat grows tight

And I hold my breath.

 

Sometimes I cry

When I get confused

And don’t know the answer

To what’s troubling me.

 

Sometimes I cry

When I hear a song

That teleports me back

To a memory long gone.

 

Sometimes I cry

When I see another’s pain

Or I hear of their burden

And I can’t take it away.

 

Sometimes I cry

For no apparent reason

Life just feels heavy

And the tears flow freely.

 

Sometimes I cry

Over mistakes I’ve made

Or pains I’ve caused

That I can’t take back.

 

Sometimes I cry

For an unexpected loss

I had more on my mind

So much yet to share.

 

Sometimes I cry

If I can’t fix what’s broken

Either I don’t have the tools

Or I lack the right words.

 

Sometimes I cry

When I look at them

And my joy overflows

When I see my children’s smiles.

 

Sometimes I cry.
