Yesterdays Sorrow - Poem by Heather Burns

A gentle rain
begins to fall
washing cares
of life away

clearing
darkened skies
from fragments
of yesterday

a new day has
dawned
looking for
tomorrow

releasing
saddened hearts
from yesterdays
sorrows.

    A gentle rain
    begins to fall
    washing cares of life
    away

    clearing
    darkened skies
    from fragments of
    yesterday

    a new day has
    dawned
    looking for
    tomorrow

    releasing
    saddened hearts
    from yesterdays
    sorrow....................................excellent write, sweet, it has great meaning and good flow...love it 10... (Report) Reply

    in my own opinion of the poem: a gentle rain begins to fall, a rain of hope, hope to wash away every past sorrow, and hope for better future, when a new day has dawned. its a soft, gentle poem, full of wit..its a 10 for me (Report) Reply
