To Say When Sad

“ You cannot protect yourself
 from sadness 
without protecting yourself 
from happiness. ”

  Jonathan Safran Foer

“ Tears shed
 for another person
 are not a sign of weakness. 
They are a sign 
of a pure 
heart. ”

 José N. Harris

 " We are each others' magnitude and bond. "

Gwendolyn Brooks

“There is some kind of a sweet innocence
 in being human. . .
in the nature of being able
 to be both broken
 and whole,
at the same time.”

 C. JoyBell C.

 “ If our destiny stems
 from our name,
 then I weep for the flower
 named Wilt. ” 

 Jarod Kintz,

“ Ho! Ho! Ho!
 To the bottle I go
To heal my heart 
and drown my woe
Rain may fall,
 and wind may blow
And many miles
 be still to go
But under a tall tree
 will I lie
And let the clouds
 go sailing by”

  J.R.R. Tolkien

Don't try to fix me
When I'm sad,

Or make me feel
I'm being bad,

Do nothing
But Be There

Don't Recoil

All good's not spoiled

Just love me,
Steady on the way

And I will guard
Your sadness

When mine has gone

Thanks for cheering me so often!

What a wonderful thought there at the end. I never tell anyone they shouldn't be sad - sometimes we just are.
