"Ah...La Vida"




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,
loss
and pain.

But in that brief phrase,
is a sweet moment

That will carry both of us
away from despair.
