Strong

I have to be strong not for me
But for everyone else
I want to cry I want to scream
But no one can see my hollow tears
I keep you near to keep me sane
But the thought of you makes me sad
I want to hide and cry alone
But you are here and it keeps me real
I know you've left this solid ground
But in my heart you still live
You've kept me together for so long
So I will stay strong for everyone else

I'm so sorry for your loss but I promise you the strongest thing you can do is cry WITH your family. Don't stuff it inside trust me I know what I'm talking about. It will either come out later on really bad ways like aggression or depression or it will stay inside you eating you from the inside And you won't be able to get it out when you need to. Your family needs you but crying with them and showing your heartbreak does not mean you are any less there for them.
