Daddy Weeps

Oh little one
come to me --
I hate to see you cry.

Bury your head
in my chest --
let you tears flow.

Real men don't cry,
that's what Daddy says --
I know.

Daddy's wrong, 
it's okay to cry --
even Daddy does.

Daddy sheds his tears,
late at night,
as you sleep --
so you can't see.

Eyes buried in my chest,
just as yours are now --
Daddy weeps.
