I Sing A Sad Song - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

I sing a sad song for the cold, lonely
Moments no one will admit to aloud.

I sing a sad song for all of the broken
Promises,
Wrought by circumstances beyond
Anyone's control.

I sing a sad song for the faces pressing
Against the window panes in longing.

I sing a sad song for wild anticipation
Of days that never come.

I sing a sad song for the telephone
That never rings enough.

I sing a sad song for dreams woven of
Hopeless illusions.

I sing a sad song for all of those who
Waste time, singing sad songs!

    Sad songs....a waste of time...maybe...to some. But deep within Blues..or... perhaps Country music...(the saddest of sad songs) ...one may often discover the intensely satisfying melody! Excellent. (Report) Reply
