 A Child's Sadness

 

I am sad, so very sad

More sad than I can say

I want to run about

To sing, to dance, to play

But I cannot

So I am sad, so very sad

More sad than I can say

I want to smile and to laugh

And wipe the tears away

But I cannot

So I am sad, so very sad

But more I cannot say

Poem copyright ACoatesworth 2009

beautiful poem. may happiness fall upon this poor child.
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo 3/3/2011
You pearce the heart with this piece. We often forget that children hear and see, but to verbalize at a young age can be difficult. Comfort, hugs, understanding, and love sometimes says more. Beautiful and heartfelt...

Be always safe,
Karen
