A VACANT ROOM

At first the sadness’s overwhelmed her…

It was with her everywhere she went

She couldn’t remove it’s ringing from her years

It’s taste

it’s feel

it’s scent

 

She knew if she was ever going to move on…

eventually she’d have to find

a way to deal with her sorrow…

a place for her sadness to be confined

 

She discovered a vacant room within her heart…

it magically opened one day

and slowly little by little she began

to pack her sorrow away.

 

She knows the sadness will revisit 

but no longer does she fear

the moments it returns…

the moments it appears…

 

For those times when it seeps back out…

those feeling of sadness and doom

she will visit with them a while 

then store them back inside this room.

 

Now she able to smile as she closes the door…

no longer is she mad…

for she remembers what made her so happy to begin with…

 

that now makes her so sad.
