"I Cry"

Klein Elementary School
Todd County, SD

I cry, I hope, I yell,
And I pray that you’ll be okay.

I’m tired of wondering,
I’m tired of trying,
And I’m tired of just not being able to let go.

Life is too short
To be living with regrets.

Always thinking
If it was ever my fault.

I’m slowly falling apart
Without you.

I will always be there for you
No matter what.

If you want to walk away
Just remember I’ll be here waiting.

All I really wanted
Was for you to be happy.

I need your support
And I need you.

Wash away your tears
And dream as if you were a flower,
Tall, lovely, and strong.

You are my mother,
And I love you dearly.
