First, I Cry

by David Kuenzli

 

Sometimes life gives me more than I think I can handle.

That’s when I ask myself, “What do I do now?”

What helps me make it through is the love I feel from you,

a love that holds me close and reminds me of what’s true.

But first, I cry. I can let those feelings flow.

I don’t have to hold back the pain that’s in my soul.

Some days I don’t feel strong.

The nights, they seem so long.

I know that life goes on,

But first, I cry.

Sometimes I wonder why my life’s not how I planned it.

At times I doubt if I have the strength to go on.

What helps me make it through is the power I feel from you.

Thanks for being here inside to remind me of what’s true.

But first, I cry. I can let those feelings flow.

I don’t have to hold back the pain that’s in my soul.

Some days I don’t feel strong.

The nights, they seem so long.

I know that life goes on,

But first I cry.

I know winter turns to spring.

Maybe then my heart will sing.

But first, but first I cry.
