Last night I cried too ... and this morning ... and this afternoon ... and a little now.

I didn't find the time to cry ... it found me.

Tears have the nasty habit of doing that.

They first come announced ... and ...

Once invited in ... they never go away again ...

And for that I am very grateful.

Enjoy your tears ... revel in them ... cherish them ...

welcome them in as you would a treasured guest ...

because that's what they are.

They are only visiting you ... they don't belong to you ...

They are on loan ...

From the child you used to be ... to the man you have become.

A man strong enough to cry.
