Cry - Poem by Adam Friedman

a deep sigh
accompanies
your tears;

eyes puffy-tired,
and amiss of sparkle.

passing by,
i wonder
what went wrong,

as i see you
quietly sitting,
head
down,
weary.

my instinct tells me
to ask you,
yet, i am at a loss for words.

at the least,
i think,
your brilliance
should not
fade:

i have seen the
sparkle
in your eyes, and
in your smile;

i have felt the
warmth
of your
presence.

don’t let the tears,
slowly
dripping
down,
take that
away.

and know
that i will always
be there
for
you.
