For Those Who Mourn

For gentle eyes
Those moistened eyes
That weep for things they cannot see

For tired hearts
Those lonely hearts
Discouraged in their faithful drum

For fragile hands
Those vacant hands
That beckon still and reach to seek

For empty arms
Those restless arms
Embracing air without relief

For silent lips
Those saddened lips
Their words abducted by a grief

For hurting souls
Those aching lives
Confounded by some sordid fate

You needn’t dwell on cruelty
Or tragic days we all well know

You needn’t stay in apathy
Or wait for those death chose to go

The orbits turn and time is firm
The tears, not either can reverse

For those who mourn are soon to learn
The earth has borne an ancient curse

  1. So many times I have mourned and I am sure there will be many more. But I am thankful for the hope that is there…. it isn’t always there but generally it is there enough to get me through.
    Well written and very touching πŸ™‚

  2. very beautiful consolation for those who mourn. The reality of pain is certainly a curse yet so aptly does it make way for beauty, new life and a resilient character πŸ™‚ Lovely piece of writing as usual.
