Don’t be afraid to cry

Posted by Range Officer Rhonda on March 30, 2008

A very amatuer poem that I wrote in Oct. 1985 at the loss of a child:

Don’t be afraid to cry

Don’t be afraid to cry,

the tears will cleanse your soul.

Don’t say you want to die,

instead, set a new goal.

With no answer to those questions

which somehow still get asked,

Are there more suggestions

to cure feelings you have masked?

Time, more time and tender loving care

will help you learn to live

with the scars forever there

and teach you again to give.

So many other people

have felt what you now feel.

Although it’s never simple

for help you should appeal.

Pick yourself up from your fall,

alway continue to try.

But remember most of all,

it really helps to cry.

    Did you lose a child? The feelings you articulate are so much of what I felt when our first child was stillborn. That is pain unlike any I’ve felt before or since.

    You say the poem is amateur — I think it is honest & expressive.
