I cried today

Reading to my class

The moment in the book

Where the character

Sacrifices himself for

Someone he loves

Some looked at me like

I was crazy

How can a book

Make you I cry

Some giggled uncomfortably

What do we do

When the teacher is weeping

In front of us

Some discretely wiped their eyes

I made no comment

As I passed around the tissue
