You should have cried Jacquie O.

Don't cry too much
You must be brave
While standing beside
A loved ones grave

You must be stoic
Like Jacquie O.
That’s how she appeared
So long ago

Draped in a veil
We watched her stand
Two little children
One on each hand

Those who remember
This family of three
John John saluting
For our memory

Shall we not cry
If we remember
Few tears were shed
That day in November

Don’t cry for your child
Who died in a war
Don’t cry for a parent
Not with you anymore

Don’t cry for a spouse
Don’t cry for your pet
Should we be stoic
And not be upset

Women may cry
Men aren’t allowed
While in mourning
In front of the crowed

Let’s shed our tears
Because it’s alright
To cry for a loved one
With all our might
