I cry because I am hurt,
Because I hurt you with the secrets.
You cry because of the secrets.
When we met, I cried
Because of the hurt I experienced
I cry because of promises not met
I cry because I do not know if you will not hurt me.

I cry because I love you
Because I am scared of loving more than I will be loved
I cry because I want you all to myself
Is that selfish?
I cry because you do not trust me
I cry because I want you to tell me everything will be alright.
I cry because the world wants a piece of you
I cry.

I cry because my friends told me you are the one
I cry because I do not believe them
Because I do not believe myself
I cry.

I cry because I want to be strong.
I want you to be mine
Mine alone
So, when I cry, I cry tears of joy and sadness
All at the same time.
