DID YOU CRY TODAY?
Martha Miranda 1992

Did you help someone today
Who carried a load you did not see?
Have you thanked someone today
Who cried through tears you did not see?

Have you carried someone's burden
Who fell along the way
Just today, did you love someone,
Just today?

Why do babies cry
And all the time cry?
Why do babies cry
All the time?
And why do women cry
And all the time cry?
Why do women cry
All the time?

Now the babies I can feed
And the babies I can rock
And the babies I can rock to sleep
But the women I can't feed
And the women I can't rock
And the women want to fight, not sleep

Now a baby is hungry
So he cries
And a woman is angry
So she cries
And a baby is tired
So he cries
And a woman is hurt
And so she cries
And a baby is hurt
So he cries
But a little love
Makes it all better
But a woman cries and cries
And cries and cries
And when she's through crying
She is not any better

A baby grows up
And doesn't cry so much
But a woman always cries
And never grows up
There must be an answer
Why women think they're loving
Or going to get their way
Every time they cry
All my life I've seen
That babies always cry
And all my life I've seen
That women always cry
And all my life I've seen
That women always cry
Over big and little things
Over nothing at all
Women simply cry
Because they love to

Now I have cried when Papa died
And I have cried when my Brother died
And I have cried when my friends have died
And I will cry when my Mama dies
But GOD give me grace
To grow up and throw up
The foolish tears of this world
And save them for only
The sorrows of others
To help them carry their load

For on each cross
There is room for one
Only one, there's room for one
And we can cry
For the one who's there
And we can cry
And pray a prayer
Have you carried someone's burden
Who fell along the way
Just today, did you love someone,
Just today?
Just today, did you cry for someone,
Just today?
Was that someone, you?
