Sometimes When You Cry

Sometimes when you cry
I want to run and hug
you
to quiet your sorrows
and then I remember
your tears is of joy.

Sometimes when you cry
I want to be close to you
to dry your eyes and then
I remember your tears
is cleansing the body.

Sometimes when you cry
I want to tuck away
and cry too
quiet my own sorrows
my own joy
and then I remember
you are here with me
and I become still
to the music of my heart.

Sometimes when you cry
I cry too.

About the author

empressjournee

I was born in Jamaica West Indies, immigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for several great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz and other great leaders. Because of my divine supreme God, he is using giants and various people to help develop the divinity within and allowed me to see the greatness of his love. I consider myself a singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my gifts.
