The Sun Will Never Shine

The sun will never shine again upon the meadow’s lush terrain where gentle summer breezes whirled and flowers bloomed as dreams unfurled and chased away the frigid rain. The angels came with saddened bane to claim your soul as I remain with clouds above, upon my world the sun will never shine. And so I sing this sad refrain as on my cheeks the teardrops stain; inside emotions feeling curled and twisted as my mind is twirled, and in my heart that’s filled with pain the sun will never shine.

Very expressive and emotive work. Grief is very hard but we all have to go through it. For some it is a short time and for others it last a lifetime but does get better with passage of time. Sara

Beautiful and poignant, yet perhaps, transcendence lies in the singularity of pain itself, without letting it drift into sorrow. I see, it is a win in a contest too! Congrats!

Congratulations John on your first place win. Sadness "whirls" and "twirls" through your lines and images. There is such great movement in your choice of words. All the best!

"The angels came, to claim your soul, as I remain" This thought touches my heart so deeply. So sad, to be without the one you love. This is tender and emotional, all at the same time. Hugs, Brandy
