The things we share

I can’t always be happy,
Will you allow me grief?
Grief for the little things,
I can’t even name.
I don’t want to cry,
But when I get silent,
Can you stay with me?
Maybe pat my head,
Or sing me a song?
I won’t cry right now,
You wouldn’t know what to do,
So I’ll just stay quiet,
And think things through.
I don’t really want to talk,
I just want company,
Will you let me be selfish,
For a night or a week?

I won’t stay sad,
I have to smile for you,
I have to smile for others,
Or they wouldn’t know what to do.
They don’t know I’m unhappy,
But few really do.
Can you let me be sad,
Just while I’m with you?
I just want company,
The times I feel lonely.
We all have ups and downs,
The downs we share with few,
It’s nothing really new,
It’s just that no one knew.
I have downs too,
And these I share with you.
