Cry Not:

Cry not for me
For no love did you show
No comforting words
Did I ever know

For years you told me
To suck it up, be a man
I don’t have time
To hold, your hand

Yet when it’s for you
I’m to do my job
Watch what I say
Don’t act a slob

Now that I’m dead
I finally understand
I never could have been
Your perfect man

I was raised to believe
That nothing
Nor no one
Is ever perfect!

Always I wonder
About perfect couples
What they are hiding
Behind public's eye

Conspiracy
No doubt
To so many
Untold crimes...

Still the shoes one walks in are never easy.
