He Cried (poem)

He cried and she would stroke his hair

He cried and she came to his side

He cried and she showed he’s her pride

He cried and she was always there

-

Oh mother you love your son so

For him you would give all you know

He’d shine and you’d stand in his glow

For him you would bear any blow

-

He cried and she would fix his food

He cried and she cleaned up his room

He cried ‘cause she failed she’d assume

He cried never knowing it’s crude

-

Oh mother you love your son so

Yet why won’t you let a man grow

He still has so much he can show

Time’s passed for you two to let go

-

He cried for his friends were too few

He cried ‘cause the money was good

He cried now assuming he should

She died and now what will he do

Mothers do tend to baby their sons more than daughters. I guess we think girls are inherently stronger than boys.

This was really interesting, Martin.
