Sorrow And Joy

Filed under: odd stuff 5 — Tags: , , , , , , , , — dansideas @ 8:40 pm


The price of love is sorrow,
Also joy.
Joy for the good times.
Joy for the times shared.
Joy for the pure love that
Will never die.
The price of love is joy,
Also sorrow.
Sorrow for the loss of
Future time not to be shared.
Sorrow for no more good times.
Sorrow for plans yet to be
Sorrow and grief for those of
Us who must stay and feel the
Loss for the time remaining
In our own lives.
But remember that when
Ones life is no longer liveable,
To stay alive is but torture
For that being.
To force one to live so that
We can enjoy their presence
And not have to feel the
Sorrow of losing the suffer
Is a greater crime than that
Of one who takes their own life.
They now have peace,
The peace I wish I had,
Instead of my own sorrow.



  1. A wonderful poem, I think. Thank you very much.
