ok, let's see if you can rise to the occasion here. Now only the TRUTH!!!


Ok, men now tell the truth
In your poem I want the proof.
Tell me what it is you do
When your lady cries to you!

Do you tend to roll your eyes
And wonder why again she crys?
Do you listen and understand
And comfort like a loving man?

Can she sit and talk with you
Bout how she feels, like good friends do?
What is the comfort that you give
If any at all in this life you live?

Please be serious, from the heart
In how you treat your other part.
Not what you think we need to hear
Just truth and from your heart my dear.

Can you meet the challenge?

well I don't really have someone right now, but I will take a shot at it.


Sweetheart your tears are falling,
heaven is raining, what's wrong?
come over here, and let me hold you close,
I want you to hear the sound of a heart that
beats only for you, I want you to feel a soul
that lives only for you.
Dear one that I am in love with, let me kiss
the tears from your cheeks,
let me give of my self in any way possible
to dry those tears, and make your smile
return, I love the more than my own breath
of life, All my God given devotion is to the,
you are the only, when you are hurting so am I. You are my life, my soul, my expression,
and everything in between, you are my lady!!!

Speechless? I think not dear Ladies, though I would ask you show us poor men the way and write the same challenge as it applies to yourself. Any takers or is it just easier to watch from the sidelines?

Nothing is worse than sorrow,
except perhaps disdain.
I'll be myself tomorrow,
tonight I'll feel the pain.

Great idea WhtDove, they'll probably all be loving responses being from poets. I'll probably get jealous cos my man doesn't do that!!

It is posted, it is done,
I popped it off in a click.
And notice I am the only one,
who did it as an acrostic!

Okay one and all, it was brought to my attention that women should also answer for what they do when men cry. I think it is fitting that if men are asked to do this challenge that women should also do it. SO PLEASE WOMEN, ONE AND ALL, TELL US WHAT YOU DO TO COMFORT AND CONSOLE YOUR MEN! Thanks, let's see if we can rise to the occasion also.
