I Cried Again Today

I Cried Again Today

I cried again today

I do most days as I awake

Questioning why I stay

Tethered unhappily to life

Tears and panic set in

I struggle and thrash about

Trying to quiet my mind

I listen to the calming sound

Your voice whispering the words

Calming the inexplicable anxiety I feel

I hear those names and feel safe

Tears and shaking soon abate

I remember why I wake

Hearing the names of those I made

I try to thank you again

You shake your head

Just remember their names

 We made them together

Your soul gave them life

I say them every morning as I do

Amazing young men, be proud

I'll hold you and say them each day

Remember always for me

The incredible woman you are

And no matter what comes

That I still and will, always love you
