For Grieving Fathers.....

Current mood: discontent

I came across this today while going through some old email messages that I had not read yet.

Let us remember that fathers hurt too.....

If you know a grieving father, reach out and let him know you care.

It must be very difficult

To be a man in grief,

Since "men don't cry" and "men are strong"

No tears can bring relief.

It must be very difficult

To stand up to the test

And field the calls and visitors

So she can get some rest.

They always ask if she's all right

And what she's going through

But seldom take his had and ask,

"My friend, but how are you?"

He hears her crying in the night

And thinks his heart will break.

He dries her tears and comforts her,

but "stays strong" for her sake.

It must be very difficult

To start each day anew

And try to be so very brave--

He lost his baby too.
