I feel sad
I don't know the reason
I wish I know
The sadness is gripping me
I feel no joy
I feel no happiness
What the future holds?
I feel arrows o sorrow landing in my heart
I feel silent cry
I keep wondering why I am sad?
Have the dreams of life faded away?
Have the flowers in the garden withered away?
Is it the cries from the past haunting me?
Is it the open wounds that never healed?
I feel apprehension
Life is now uneventful and monotone
is it the queitness before the storm?
The howling sounds echoe in my mind
the sense of life and death resonates
Feeling of loneliness add to sadness
Memories of loved ones revist me
wheels of time have turned rapidly
new pages of life will soon be open
wondering what they will be?
Will they be happy?
Will they be sad?
It is great mystry
the fear in my heart toys with me
The mystereous sadness remains
I want to drink from cup of joy
I want to smell the fragrance of the flowers
