The Song of Sadness


The Song can be sung by the young and the old,

The song of the meek and the song of the bold.

The Song tells of loneliness,  suffering and fear.

The Song gives us hope and the Song brings us fear.

The Song is an endless one, sung for all time

It tells us of struggles, and mountains to climb.

Some say that this Song fades away when we sleep

And rises again when sad secrets we keep.

There are many times when it hurts us to sing

Because of the tears fellow choristers bring.

But I will keep singing the song of my heart

The song that - my soul tells me - sets us apart.

The End
