Sorrow’s Touch


Sorrow’s touch surprises

in unexpected ways

in unexpected places

When the theft of happier days

steers the course of a life,

the journey twists, unique in its unfolding

Sometimes for the very lucky

that hollow loss makes room for healing

if expectations are released

Even when a lone wolf howls, haunting and mournful

from the top of the coldest mountain,

a chorus of voices readily answers his call

  1. Very emotional poem. Yes we can heal. Nothing can replace what’s lost. But we can make room for new people in our life. And be with those who understand our grief. Just my synopsis of what I think the poem is about.
    Great job.
