Days gone by

Days to come

Tears to cry

Missing my daughter and son

Little things

No longer share

Sorrow brings

Another tear

Wish and pray

It wont be long

Comes the day

Where you belong

Here to stay

My son.

For Haruka and always

inspired8...though I enjoyed this poem with so few words yet so big a meaning I felt pain here..sorrow can be for ones we lost in death but also for those we have lost and are still alive...

These pictures are beautiful and I pray that the children are still alive and well, and if so you will see them soon, if not I pray that God brings you comfort....

thanks for sharing :bow: :hugs:

Reach Out And Love Someone
Slow Down And Look around
You Will Find Someone Who Needs You.....

O- Sorrow- You love all
Whether they accept or not
You enter into their lives
You give them real trouble

None can escape your clutches
Your grip is really a tight one
With fate you have a contract
You two give maximum jolts

In case a soul sincerely prays
May be God will come for favor
But, as you are God-made
Only for solid reasons you arise

You go even to the smallest baby
And also to the oldest soul
You in a way do not differentiate
None can hide to avoid easily you

Sorrow less life is a rarity
May be, it is only Heaven
All come into sorrow's circle
A king is also not an exception

Sorrow is a state of mind
Still none has that maturity
To view it in a matured way
Sorrow is married to the World

Life starts with the baby's cry
And ends when mother gives milk
That is the beginning in life
Then sorrow's visit is non-stop

As a boy, lad, man and old man
As a girl, lass, woman and old lady
As an animal, reptile, or a bird
Even as a tree, Moon and stars

Sorrow is part and parcel of life
Evading it is an impossible task
Acceptance really gives a cure
Facing sorrow almost solves it

If sorrow comes, be philosophical
Take it fully in the right spirit
Tackle it and try to wisely overcome
May God help you, me and also all.
