Sadness


The Sadness within

Stares –

In silent pining

With tearless eyes

And dry lips

As the clamours of Fears

Ring in its ears –

Unaffected by the noise

And the pains of wounded, bleeding heart ….

Searching, Waiting for the Strength

To raise its hands –

Folded with Devotion

And dissolve its Spirit

Into the eternal calmness of Surrender.

We will all experience sadness in our lives at some point. I like what you wrote at the end about the "gloominess of night passing on to welcome dawn..."
