To Cry – a poem

If you need to cry,

To weep,

To wail and howl and sob and keep on,

Until you feel as though your body

Has been drained of every feeling

Through every ounce of liquid it contained:

Know that you are not alone.
You will not be the only one

Who is crying tonight.

Who is sleeping on a damp pillow,

Or turning over in bed,

Silent drops of sadness running down their face.
You will not be alone

In clutching onto a faint scrap

Of hope or joy

Then, feeling it slip away,

Know your heart is breaking afresh. 
You do not weep alone.
