 Do you know that she cries

When your words slap her,
Shrink her with pain?
Do you know that she cries
As you pelt her with anger,
As accusations fall like rain?
Do you know that she cries
As you dredge up the past
Recalling every misdeed?
Do you know that she cries
As you withhold your love
And the affection she needs?
Do you know that she smiles
When she talks of her future,
Of the plans she has made.
Do you know that she laughs
When surrounded by friends
Joking, playing, seemingly unafraid.
Do you know that she loves
Even though you have taught her
Love is a cruel affair.
Do you know that she cries
Trying to understand a mother
And a life that isn’t fair.
Do you know how sad you are
For not listening with your heart
When she begs for your attention.
Do you know how much you lose
By not valuing her soul
By not seeing her entire dimension.
Do you know how precious a gift
You have been given in her -- 
A daughter, a friend … 
Do you know that she cries?
Can you hear her private tears?
Will you please help it end?
