The Secret Sorrows of Those Who Do Not Sleep


Oh the secret sorrows of those who dare not sleep
Reliving all their sorrows in dark of night
Over truths unspoken, oh how they weep
As the deep dark overtakes their sight

Oh the secret sorrows of those who dare not sleep
Every night how they relive those ancient pains
Into the heart of darkness, delving ever deep
Feeling every wound, again, and again

Oh the secret sorrows of those who dare not sleep
For in dreams the pain lives on, and on
Whispering in the dark so private, of the secrets they keep
Hidden from revealing light of breaking dawn

Oh the secret sorrows of those who dare not sleep
Oh the secret sorrows and ancient scars
Oh the endless dreamers in the dark so deep
Whose secrets are kept by moon and stars

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
