You Can't See Me Cry

Location

I cannot let you see me cry

It's not that I don't have something to cry over

I don't know why when I cry

I run for cover

rather than the open arms of my mother

I cannot let you see me cry

It's not that I want to look tough

It's that I'm strong

It's not that my day hasn't been rough

Is that wrong?

I cannot cry in front of anyone

Not my family

Not my friends

I always cry into my pillow instead

It's not that I can't let you see

It's not that don't need comforting

I need you mommy

I cannot let you see me cry

I've been alone for too long

That is why you can't see me cry mom
