The Joy Of Sorrow


A thousand bulbs
glow in your eyes
their sparkle rivalling
the stars
Your smile
illuminates the night

The moon takes time off

Blinded by unbridled joy
I light up from within
knowing I am your sun


In the dark
I see what the glow
of a thousand bulbs hid
I was never the sun
that sparkled in your eyes
Your smile was not meant
to light up my night.

The moon goes missing

Yet I feel unbridled joy
for sorrow has
set me free
