Allow Me Today To Be Sad

Source

Allow me today to be sad

Allow me today to cry for a dad


He was a little brother

and a blessing to his mother


Allow his sister to cry today

when her brother past away


There are no words to explain

his wife's and his children's pain


When I close my eyes

memories pass by

and I remember

he was always nice


His kind heart and his big smile

is now hidden under a frozen pile

Hi Thelma Alberts, I wrote this poem a while ago and it is not about a person very, very close to me. Thank you!

Hi bravewarrior, it isn't about my own brother, but it still was a loss for my family. Thank you!

Thank you btrbell, as I already commented above, this isn't about my own brother. I guess I should clarify that before I have more comments.

It's interesting about the things we write. People always believe that the poem is about us....as creative writers, and as poets, many times we simply write about life and similar experiences. I'm glad this wasn't a recent loss for you, and I'm also happy to see you writing again. Welcome back, my friend.

Hi Bill, when I write I often want to speak for someone else. "I" or "me" doesn't always mean it's about me. It can be about someone I know. Thank you for welcoming me back my friend.

You are right Gypsy Rose Lee, it's really sad if it is a close person. Thank you.
