I Am Sorry You Are Sad
I am sorry that you are sad.
I am sorry for the stories you do not tell,
For the everyday reminders of your pain.
I am sorry that every time you look,
You see only your sadness staring back.
Sometime pain is the ache of unexpressed love.
I wish you could love That
Instead of saving your love for This.
I wish you a journey of happiness –
Not a seasonal glut that leaves you nostalgic,
But moments of smiles and joy
Sprinkled throughout your years,
And gathered like hills beyond hills.
I wish you a contented smile each night.
And I pray that you are never this sad again.
