Wiping Tears


Don't be afraid

Don't be scared

Let it out

Don't be ashamed


I'm here for you

You have my shoulder

If you need to cry

Or just to lean on



I'll run my thumbs

Across your gentle cheeks

And wipe away all your tears


Express your feelings

Don't go hiding

I will sit with you

Until your back up on your feet


Don't allow anyone

To tell you how to feel

You are human darling

Don't forget


So cry or pound the ground

Let it all out

I'll be here for you
