Just Let Me Cry

They see me with tears on my cheek

Yet, all they offer are words snide and bleak

They don’t see you were my first love, be it “infatuation”

But you were also my first heartbreaking disillusion

All they say is that I’m but a child, and about love, don’t know a single thing

And perhaps they’re right, but oh! How it stings!

I’ll admit I know I’ll be okay as time goes by 

But listen to me, please: for now, just let me cry

Sometimes all we need is someone to cry with us. Not tell us to stop crying or why it’s a waste of time to cry.More likely than not, we already know. Just be a shoulder to cry on. That’s all we need once in a while.
