Why Do Grown-ups Cry

By Walt Perryman

Why do grown-ups cry?
Here are a few reasons why.

When one of your loved ones dies,
It makes many tears in your eyes.

A love that went all wrong,
A love that went on too long.

A pain that hurts too bad,
Many things can make you sad.

What I like are the happy tears,
That gives relief from your fears.

Tear ducts are connected to our heart,
That must be where tears get their start.

So, today if you have to cry at all,
I hope it is the happy tears that fall.
