Why Must I Cry?

Why must I cry?
Why must these tears fall from my face?

I needed you
You needed me
We needed each other, as you could see

On each other we clung
To draw forth strength
We lived on each other
And helped to hide the pain

You grew and matured
I found a rut
Pushing you forward, I lagged behind
