(1.6) Sad Songs


The world is full of
Too many sad songs,
They may touch the heart,
But right no wrongs,

They are melodious,
But so very dark and drear
That I cannot find
One that I want to hear.

I want to hear about
Happiness in full bloom,
So that cheery sounds
Can displace this gloom,

Tell me how love
And children's happy laughter's
Filling the world
And ringing from the rafters,

Bring the light to my life
That I've so sadly missed,
Return to me the joy
of a newfound lovers' kiss...
