No, I’m not afraid to admit

that I’ll always shed a tear

when my life is broken,

when the world is dark,

and there is no hope at all.


I’ll always cry

when a single mother cries,

when a bird’s denied to fly,

when you’re reaching out

for hope and no one’s near

just to say: it’s alright!


No! I’m not afraid!

Begone, I need you not,

all I wanna do tonight

is to give away my tears


to those who admit

they’ll always shed a tear…
