Talking of being in a deep sorrow
Masked for a time beyond
I hide, under my shell of invisibility
I sulk, for I am lower still
Than I was to begin with

But then something triggers
My thoughts explode with all kinds
Of special feelings of heavenly
Love, brought to me by so many
Of my friends, and my family
All of whom I cherish
Without which I would certainly
Drown in my own darkest nights
Of emptiness…

But I only see light filled love
Beaming all around me
Lifting me higher each day
Making my pain go away
So I may make it again this way
And love all today

Russell Sivey

Russell, this is so good! I love it. I am sure it is very depressing to be in pain, but with the love of your family and friends, you can make it. Hope you have a full recovery soon! Thank you for your visit (you and your wife!) on my poem, it meant a lot. Get better soon!
