Feeling Blue Poem by Susan Williams

Feeling Blue

Rating: 4.9

you say we should shake it off
you say get over it
you say it's not good for us
you say it makes a bad situation worse
I think we should enjoy the mood
what's wrong with feeling blue
gives us time to be melancholy
and think sad soulful thoughts
tomorrow we can dance in the rain
but today we can watch it rain
and trace its lonely tears
down our windowpane

A beautiful poem with a meaningful message. There is always a time for everything. Happiness and sadness have their own time. And sometimes happiness could spring from sadness. A marvelous piece of art that will find its home in the hearts of many readers. Very well composed and conveyed.10 and on to my Poem List.

In my reread of this soulful poem, I've come to appreciate it even more. Since that time, some friends have moved on to The Great Beyond. In having experienced that bluesy mood, I was able to more fully appreciate the precious value of those great friendships.
