A long day ended,
and I am tired.
A sunny Joyful day,
yet I remember clouds and rain.
“Why sad?” politely asked.
A single tear rolled down my cheek,
I swallow, pause and compose myself.
And you supplied the answer for me,
“Ah, the life”
I know I do not need to explain,
to a heart familiar with suffering,
But in that brief phrase,
is a sweet moment
That will carry both of us
away from despair.
