I Cried Today

I cried today, and it's okay
In hindsight now, I can't fall prey
To doubt and fear, or dark dismay
Their dreary biddings to obey
*
I cried today, it's tough to say
Just why I cried, I can't convey:
Emotions come, and sometimes stay
Or leave quite fast, like runaways
*
I cried today, my feet of clay
Were showing, yes, in full display!
Life's glory moments, bright and gay
Can turn when "Yes!" is changed to "Nay!"
*
I cried today, but I'm okay
I cry sometimes, and on a day
The tears are there, I feel this way
Just know I'm fine, e'vn when I'm gray

My wife found me crying in the garage, just a quick moment missing my dad. Wanted her to know it was ok.
