Yesterdays Sorrow


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.

    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

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
