This poem is a tribute for fathers who are sometimes a little neglected.
A Father's grief is very real although they may not express it in the same way as their partner.

A Father's Grief

It must be very difficult 
To be a man in grief, 
Since "men don't cry"and "men are strong"
No tears can bring relief.
It must be very difficult
To stand up to the test,
And field the calls and visitors
So she can get some rest.
They always ask if she's all right
And what she's going through.
But seldom take his hand and ask,
"My friend, but how are you?"
He hears her crying in the night
And thinks his heart will break.
He dries her tears and comforts her
,But "stays strong" for her sake.
It must be very difficult
To start each day anew.
And try to be so very brave
It was his baby too.
