A lament over a sad song

O sad song I write about you with rivers of tears Streaming down my cheeks So blue is your melody So low is your beat So down is your rhythm So touching are your words… As I tune into you in this valley of tears I hear the The echoes of misled dreams Rings of missed opportunities Resonates of forlorn hopes Rhythm of defeated aspirations Beat of disappointed wishes and Resounds of empty promises.

Yeap, Music is one mechanism that has the power to change one’s mood and emotions. So it happens I was listening to a sad song.
