Sadness

There is a pain within my heart
a shadow of darkness caressing my innermost soul
of needs unmet and love unfulfilled
a sadness that will not abate or go away

To marry young only to grow so far apart
is a tragedy hard to endure indeed
to fall so far out of love
takes away the joy that makes life worth living

Having to rely upon another’s smile
because your mates has grown dim and cold
one who could never be told of hidden feelings stirring
doesn’t make for a happy life indeed!

Of this truth I am convinced
happiness can not be found within a bottle
or within the arms of a woman
but is a choice we ourselves must make!
