May 02, 2010 - Saddest Song of Old





Saddest Song of Old

Do you find yourself holding on to nothing
With absolutely everything you have
So afraid that you will lose
What you never had

Are you just letting go of everything
You've found so easy to obtain
While crying out for that
You wouldn't want if gained

Take a look at what you have
Listen to its song
Perhaps you'll find it's the very thing
You've wanted all along

If you find you're never satisfied
With anything you hold
Then your heart may be singing
The saddest song of old

It takes a long to realise the moments of joy...
We are forever looking for more and we don't cherish what we really have...So true...
Thank you, I wish I held on to my source of happiness...

Brilliant poem with a deep message, we are all looking for improvements in our lifestyle,in the hope that we can achieve that lifetime wish,however many of us never reach our goal, so we sing that sad song.

Such comfort in your words I can not explain. This is full of emotion and truth. Not to be confusing. I love it , Neva. Faith
