in this sadness of sunlight…
where trees cease shaking
woodland rests with bated breath
wryly squirrels search for home

A bone chilling cold that hurts
Parts of your body

Premium Member Irish tears
They tried but left in tears,
Now,far from Ireland's sadness.
A train of covered wagons
upon vast plains of promise.

A soulful melancholy
A sense of deep hurt . . .

Loneliness, ill-health
Or the long cold
Winter nights,
That fills the heart with sadness.

It's time to depart
I'll treasure those memories
I'm very thankful
Those happiness and sadness
I'll never forget those days...

My heart is afraid of sorrow
Make the city yours
Free my heart' cravings 
Banish this sadness...

tearing up
as I hope she shows up
for perhaps the last time...
