week 230 ~ for everything comes after

with 6 comments

me.230

for everything comes after
in this place of sad goodbyes
there will be room for laughter

take solace from your past her
promises were never lies
for everything comes after

so climb aboard the raft cer-
tain grief bleeds through all disguise
there will be room for laughter

as you stop make a half turn
and look forward with new eyes
for everything comes after

where memories at last blur
and dreams materialize
there will be room for laughter

just hold your loved ones fast sure
you’re sailing toward blue skies
for everything comes after
there will be room for laughter

  3. Enjoyed again. This feels like it comes from the marrow of your bones, Marilynn.

    • Yes, I think so. Although, like many poems, it is somewhat of a mystery how it got out, and in sonnet form too.
