From the author, Fr Tony Bailey:

'Don't organise my tears' may not appear to be an invitation; yet it is an invitation to get involved in the grief of others. Not in any interfering way, but by sympathy and compassion. The verses in this small book express my involvement in the grief I witnessed in the lives of others. All grief is unique, I cannot know what you are suffering. However I found that when I attempted to express in verse my grief in seeing others grieve it helped me cope.

It is in the hope that they may be of help to others that these verses are published.
