A Woman on the Train

A woman on the train was crying today

Fallen tears and loud hiccups were echoing around

Can’t hide what can’t be hidden

The day has been so long

It seems to have no end

Is there going to be a tomorrow


Will there be a reason to get up

Suit on, high hills on, straight up shoulders

Everything is a sign of a strong woman

But head’s down and eyes swollen from the unstoppable pain that falls from those eyes


She gets up with a body of a queen and a soul of a child

Looked at me and now I know there will be no tomorrow.

Her pain is deep in my stomach and suddenly my shoulders are so tired

All the worry wasn’t her problem anymore but mine.
