Sad.

Sad, that is all…

Nothing more and nothing less…

Sad, that is all…

I don’t want you to try and cheer me, it wouldn’t help anyway.

I don’t want you to try and talk me out of it, I know the way I feel.

Sad, that is all…

Nothing more and nothing less…

I would rather have you come and sit quietly besides me.

I would rather have you put your arms around me.

Sad, that is all…

Nothing more and nothing less..

Sad, that is all…

  1. Sad, and sweet. I wish I could sit beside you and give you a hug when you feel this way.

    Your poem reminds me of a song I wrote years ago, that I call “Times.” The melody is soft and sad, like a mournful lullaby. Here are the words:

    There are funny times and sad times
    hard times and easy times
    good times and bad times, I know.
    But it looks today like it’s just gonna rain
    gonna rain, gonna rain all day long.

    There are full times and empty times
    work times and play times
    friendly times and lonely times, I know.
    But today I’m just gonna be alone again
    be alone, be alone once more.

    Now I’m not happy but I’m not really sad
    I can’t smile but I don’t need to cry
    I’m not weary but there’s nothing to do
    so I guess I’ll just sit and let the time pass by.

    There are funny times and sad times
    hard times and easy times
    good times and bad times, I know.
    But it looks today like it’s just gonna rain
    gonna rain, gonna rain all day long.
