Tonight




Tonight,
Don't ask me to be strong
Tonight,
Don't tell me what I'm doing is wrong,
Tonight,
Let me cry....

I remember the words
of the song I used to sing
Don't remind me,
Tonight,
What I tricked myself into believing.

Tonight,
Don't tell me
"Crying ain't good"
I wouldn't have cried,
I would've been laughing;
Had I only understood....

Tonight,
Let me be the kid
Afraid of the dark,
Tonight,
Let me be the girl
with the broken heart,
Tonight,
Let me cry....

{On reading this, a friend of mine wrote something really sweet for me. It is a continuation of the poem "Tonight"; but this time it speaks of the positive side of life}

I grant thee the wish...
To become the sea fish
To become the free wings...
And snap the guiding strings!

Tonight,
Lose yourself in the deep blue ocean...
And burst out of imprisoned suffocation!

Tonight,
Measure the limitless skies...
And forget all of life's lows and highs...

It's your time
To sing the song of freedom,
It's your time to live life wholesome.

Life awaits thee...
You are free!
