A World Torn Apart (poem)

Updated on March 25, 2014

A silent sound of nothing fills his heart

As music of sweet spring reclaims the air

Another night for world so torn apart

While morning’s Joy is blooming everywhere

-

The rainbows spread the colors of his pain

From rains whose wash is promise to renew

Reminder of his sorrowful refrain

The sunshine’s twinkle in the flower’s dew

-

His cries are filled with sad unanswered whys

As all of nature answers call to love

While years of seconds pass before his eyes

His spring continues wonders from above

-

Yet as he turns toward spring’s warm welcome door

He hears you will not see her anymore

      Very, very poignant my friend..

      Perhaps he waited too many millions of seconds? Life doesn't seem to put up with much dilly-dallying..

      It hurts every day and it's joyous every day..

      Crazy man...xx

      Have a great hump day, M!

      How sad to be so heartbroken as to miss the beauty of Spring. I picture him on the outside looking in. So sad.

      An amazing introduction to the wonderment of thought vigilant upon both reflection and introspective. Thank you for offering contrast while presenting a comparison revealing truths for any person, of least myself as I seek seeing again . . . Nice!
