Sadness

Tears

TV programs, sad songs end in tears

mine. Flowing down the years.

Is there an answer it hurts so.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blue eyes flash and glow.

Hiding secrets untapped they grow and grow.

Why sad, we’ll never know.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gently as the angel weeps

over  sleeping children her watchful guarding keeps.

Sadness hers at their plight.

    Sadness reigns as the songs melody our minds into soulful tears of thought. May your song’s melodies see the sunlight that shines for you.

    This is going to sound different than how I mean it – but this is the truth. You are the only person who can change the channel. Quit sending love to the sad. It doesn’t deserve the energy you are letting it take from you. I don’t say this from a place of judgement or a lack of knowing where you are. I HAVE BEEN THERE. I promise promise promise I have. And I am telling you right now – it does not deserve you! So take you back and own your bad ass self. Hugs!

    Beautifully expressed, Willowdot21. I love the photo too. ‘Sadness’. It’s quite a word. It does speak for itself, you can feel it.

    Hope you have a happy day though! 🙂

    Dear, dear willowdot, how empathetic you are! It is always a very good thing to weep with those who weep–and laugh with those who laugh! Tears are cleansing and clear the path for us to go forward!
