So dry your eyes…
Don’t cry, you know the tears will do no good
So dry your eyes
They told you life is hard
Misery from the start, it’s dull
It’s slow, it’s painful
But I tell you life is sweet
In spite of the misery
There’s so much more, be grateful.
-Natalie Merchant, Life is Sweet
But tonight I cried. Listening to these words, I cried.
Life is sweet. Sometimes it’s just hard to taste the sweetness through the bitter, salty tears.
