Sorrow Sings

Sorrow sings
in perfect harmony
with all that is

Tears run in silent streams
that overflow
with dreams once spun
and love begun
in utter honesty
till mankind's make-believe
got in the way

and dreams became
mere expectations
that love's duration
would not recognize

while the loving and the wise
allow its way
to permeate each night
and day of change

but tears will dry
even as we wonder why
they need to be
and hearts will sing
beyond the sorrow
parting brings
into our lives

creating each potential
of a heart that longs to love
