Big Girls Cry

I wrote this in about 5 minutes one evening. A dear friend, who I had been chatting with just about every evening, announced that she would be cutting her time online back; for all sorts of reasons, none of which I could change. We were both crying, having become somewhat co-dependent it was a wrench to imagine not having each other to lean on. She sent me a U-Tube link to Fergie’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry”. I immediately responded “yes they do” and wrote this:
Big girls cry,
and laugh,
and dance and sing.
Big girls fall in love,
and sparkle,
and bleed.
Big girls say I love you,
and mean it,
and ache.
Big girls say let me help you,
and ask for help,
when they need it.
Big girls shine in the sun,
and glow in the moon,
and sometimes hide away.
Big girls cry,
behind the smiles,
and just get on.
I really like it, and so does she 🙂
