Dancing on silver linings

She tried hard to dance on silver linings
Though she was not a very graceful girl
Those awkward left feet would always trip her
Into the dark clouds she would always fall

Though she was not a very graceful girl
She had a strange grace in the way she moved
Into the dark clouds she would always fall
Yet I never saw her without a smile

She had a strange grace in the way she moved
Those she thought were her friends would laugh at her
Yet I never saw  her without a smile
I wondered what was going on in her mind

Those she thought were her friends would laugh at her
If it hurt her she did not let it show
I wondered what was going on in her mind
Perhaps that's why I came to her rescue

If it hurt her she did not let it show
I knew there must be sad beyond the smile
Perhaps that's why I came to her rescue
In that moment she was able to cry

I knew there must be sad beyond the smile
Those awkward left feet would always trip her
In that moment she was able to cry
She tried hard to dance on silver linings
Now with a true friend, she is able to fly


Check out my mom's latest poem, she totally shocked me
Hilarious stuff. Her Poetry Soup Name is Mama Bear.

    Very nice Richard. One of the hardest forms for me, but you make it look simple. I really like the line "In that moment she was able to cry". So true and typical.

    For some people that is the only way they feel safe. I hope she finds a different way.
