Because We Love We Cry*

*By Sheree Fitch of Nova Scotia, Canada ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

Sometimes there is no sense to things my child
Sometimes there is no answer to the questions why
Sometimes things beyond all understanding
Sometimes, people die.

When it hurts like this, my child
When you are scared, suffering, confused
Even if we are not together
Together, let us cry

Yes, there is still so much love
Because we love, we cry.

Sometimes the sadness takes away your breath
Sometimes the pain seems endless, deep
Sometimes you cannot find the sun
Sometimes you wish you were asleep.

When it hurts like this, my child
When you are scared and confused
Even if we are not together,
Together, let us cry

Yes, there is still so much love
Because we love, we cry.

Wish that I had answers, child
Wish all this wasnโ€™t so
There are impossible things, child
I cannot bear for you to know .

When it hurts like this, my child
When you are scared and confused
Even if we are not together,
Together, let us cry

Yes, there is still so much love
Because we love, we cry.

Sheree Fitch recited her poem, above, on the CBC Special televised vigil on Friday April 24, 2020.ย  I found myself weeping at these words which were so completely apt and heartfelt.ย  Thank you Sheree.ย  Rest in Peace to the fallen.
