If you heard my cries

If you heard my cries could you bear to listen knowing I cry from missing you

If you heard my cries would you rush to comfort me and whisper softly it’ll be okay

If you heard my cries would you wish for deafness or simply walk the other way

If you heard my cries would you kiss my cheek to make my tears go away

If you heard my cries would you know the pain that causes my tears to flow

If you heard my cries that you would know my tears sprang from the soul

If you heard my cries would you sing to me my favorite some from times ago

If you heard my cries would you love me again turn and walk back through the door

If you heard my cries would you seek my storm to read it the book of psalms

If you heard my cries could you find the strength to leave me last and all alone

If you heard my cries…

    This is pretty deep. It’s odd to see prisoners as poetic and caring instead of the stereotypical “thug tough guy” we see on TV and movies.
