Each time my Lady is moved to tears,
something inside of me dies.
I cannot assuage all of her fears,
'tis the reason that she cries.

I cradle my Lady close to me,
letting her feel safe and warm.
I hate seeing her in misery,
so I calm her inner storm.

My ears listen to her every word,
while my heart feels all her pain.
My Lady's woes will not go unheard,
for my heart they split in twain.

She cares not to hear of my anguish,
as from her it all does stem.
In her unconcern she does languish,
being a treacherous femme.

This shows the comfort I give to her,
against the pain that life deals.
Upon me the same she will not confer,
for my sanity she steals.

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

very well done, and sadly so, yes a lot of times, not just for you, women are cradled when they cry, men just have to deal with it...double standard hits again

Scott this was touching. You have a big heart, and I'm sorry if it's not returned to you. I believe strongly it should be a two way street. Though I guess I would have to agree with you here and say I'm pretty much in the same position, I comfort tho he don't cry. But only once I can remember was he consoling. So I know just where it is you're coming from. I try to look at the positives, but sometimes I just can't get around needing and understanding ear and heart. I thank you for answering the challenge.
I have to say though it was not directed at you, I'm sorry you felt that way. IT is for my own insight, so as I may learn what it is you guys feel when a women cries. Cause I see lots of frustration, and not knowing what to do. On my end that is!

Wow Dream,
This slipped by me the first time through...but I'm kind of glad it did. Having learned more of you and your relationship of late makes me truly appreciate this piece much more than I probably culd have before. Excellent, my friend...you have my every compassion.
