Bronze Star - 5,195 Points (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

For Many Countless Years


When I decided to look each one of my troubles,
In the face to eliminate with tolerated patience...
I began to pick replacements.
I had not realized I was feeding light to a darkness,
Until I stopped making attempts,
To share what was being taken for granted.

When I decided to look each one of my troubles,
In the face to eliminate with tolerated patience...
I said goodbye with a meaning meant to leave.
And turned my back to be received I did,
Into the arms of that which had been awaiting...
For many countless years to bring to me happiness.

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
