Sadness Is A Major Theme Of Mine

Sadness is a major theme of mine
I am sad a lot
I am not sure why -

My father was the saddest person I have ever known
Perhaps its that-

But life is sad
It has so much sadness in it-

Yesterday a very good friend of mine
Was pronounced incurably ill
So many friends of our recently
Have become very ill-
Aging brings much sadness with it-
So much sadness -

Inside I have too much joy too and peace and calm
I have those things also-

But sadness is always here or waiting to come.

this is really sad...i guess this means your poem is in effect....i haven't read all your poems... i wouldn't know how to read a 1798 poems....but whichever I've read I've loved...whichever I've loved has graced me with a different you....and with that being said I'd like to say you are a million in one
