I saw a girl holding back her tears,
As she saw me her eyes widen with fears.
She hurriedly covered her face with her hair,
and asked me not to stare.
I said: “I’m sorry, I don’t tend to interfere;
But I could lend you my ear”
but she just said: “I don’t need you, please disappear;
People don’t know how to listen but just hear”
I wondered what happened to her,
That those words she did confer.
I just want to show my care,
but seeing it she wouldn’t dare.
Maybe she’s used being alone,
and solve problems on her own.
But wouldn’t it be better to have someone,
rather than being with no one?
I guess there is nothing else I can do,
I just said: “Cry your heart out, I won’t stop you”
Then all of a sudden she burst into tears,
I tried to comfort her with: “it’s okay, my dear”
She suddenly stops to look at me,
“You’ll never know the pain unless you feel!”
Finding she is right about that,
I decided to move beside her and quietly sat.
I didn’t say a word but I feel her pain,
with no one to lean on anyone could be insane.
She didn’t mind me beside her,
she just cried until her vision is a complete blur.
If I could do something to ease her pain,
and a way that her trust I could gain.
At least she’ll be able to know there is someone,
rather than believing there is no one.
Her tears seem to be flowing endlessly,
and beside her I just sighed heavily
She is the type of person bottling all up,
rather than answering other people “What’s up?”
I wonder if she is tired of endless crying.
But at least letting her feelings out she’s trying.
They said tears are the words the heart can’t say,
I just hope all her pain will go away.
Then I woke up to face the reality,
that “The Girl Who Cried” was me.
It was my reflection all along,
from the mirror where it belong.
Now I’m suddenly speechless,
I’m comforting my own weakness
But is it wrong comforting your own self,
When you’re tired keeping it all on your shelf?
I believe there is nothing wrong in crying,
especially when you feel like dying.
I knew there were people always there for me,
But I just choose to not let them see.
Because this pain that I have in my heart,
I can’t let them take part.
For there are already things on their mind,
my problems shouldn’t be combined.
But I know I’m stronger than what I seem,
I know I’ll be okay after I eat an Ice cream.
For all people have their own pain,
and every rainbow comes after the rain.
This bumpy road that I came across,
God made it so I will pause.
To think about how my life went wrong,
and how it will make me strong.
So the girl in the mirror tied her hair,
she now smiles at me and swear.
That she will try to be stronger,
and not cry any farther.
But now she is tired and weak,
she feels like she cried for almost a week.
She decided to go to bed and sleep,
because she believes tomorrow is a new day to reap.
