Yeah the tears came hard to me too, but when they did come I was afraid they'd never stop. 43 years of them stored up is not good for a guy. And as much as I hated crying till my throat was sore, till my eyes were swollen shut, and till snot ran down my face, it had to be done. It had to come out.
Its kind of like how a woman feels when she's having a baby. Once it starts coming it can't be stopped. It hurts like hell. And when its all done you have a new person.
"When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown, the dream is gone
And I have become comfortably numb."Pink Floyd
