I Sing A Sad Song - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

I sing a sad song for the cold, lonely
Moments no one will admit to aloud.

I sing a sad song for all of the broken
Wrought by circumstances beyond
Anyone's control.

I sing a sad song for the faces pressing
Against the window panes in longing.

I sing a sad song for wild anticipation
Of days that never come.

I sing a sad song for the telephone
That never rings enough.

I sing a sad song for dreams woven of
Hopeless illusions.

I sing a sad song for all of those who
Waste time, singing sad songs!

    A... Mazing. Simply adore these words Dorothy. And would loved to sing a sad song with you. As Elton says... Sad songs say so much... Though doesn't have to mean feeling sad.
    Just love your beautiful smile on your page and your heart that goes with it. (Report) Reply

    Sad songs....a waste of some. But deep within Blues..or... perhaps Country music...(the saddest of sad songs) may often discover the intensely satisfying melody! Excellent. (Report) Reply
