Uriah Hamilton

To A Sad Girl

There is no way to explain
Unending sorrow and grief,
No way to kiss a young girl’s cheek
In a way that would give her back
The joy death has stolen.

Humans are brave enough
To live and bleed and die,
But to be the one remaining
As others say goodbye
Is too much to withstand.

There are evil stars that smirk
And thus mark us for treacherous fates,
The days all burn like desert fields
Until there is nothing left to love
And nothing left to feel.

    We cannot replace loved ones but we can find solitude in the comfort of others.A caring word can sometimes make us realise this.Love Duncan

    'Humans are brave enough

    This is such a remarkable poem Uriah. It's so hard to understand how deep the sorrow is when you are left while your loved ones go unless you've experienced it. This is very well done. Sincerely, Mary

    This poem goes with my poems today 'The Candle' and 'Dreamquake.' There must be evil stars about that touched our poetry. This is so sad and very well done.
