To Cry Like a Little Child

A Poem

Sometimes I just want to cry
As though I’m a little child,

Sometimes I just want to cry
As though I’m six or five
A kid who pouts and wails
As though her lungs would burst
When tears fall like rain.

Sometimes I just want to cry
Without explaining
Without anyone complaining
How I’m not making
Any sense at all.

Sometimes I just want to cry
As though I’m a little child
The kind of weeping
That goes with knowing
She need not hide her teary eyes.

“To Cry Like a Little Child” is a poem from my book “Poems of Love and Letting Go”.
