Married for forty-five years. Now a widow. Eight grown children that have turned out to be good people. I am proud of them. Thirty-five grandchildren and three great grandchildren. I like to write things silly or serious, and everything in between.

Sad Poems
"Peace of Heart" by dkblack
Hold me close, tell me it will be all right
Stay with me all through this night
The hurt, it's gone so deep
This night, I will not sleep

I can't tell you what's inside
I just want to close it off and hide
The hurt, the pain, it can not last
For in life or love the die is cast

Your arms are warm, safe, secure
I need you here, you know what for
I lost something dear to me
Please darling, stay near to me

Make it better with your care
Find a way to reach me there
Where love or pain can harbor inside
Letting tenderness be your guide

I was alone before you
Alone and bitter too
My heart once so full, so much to give
Couldn't find its reason to live

I do not know what to say
I only know that God will close this day
And tomorrow will greet me very soon
Please make its song a happy tune

Let me forget the pain of the past
Let my heart find peace at last

Sad Poems writing prompt entry

Writing Prompt
Sadness has overcome us all at one time or another. Either caused by a relative or close friend's death or from the girl or guy that broke our heart or just life in general. We all handle situations differently, some good, some bad. This contest gives us the ability to explore this. Your poem can also play into other emotions that are common to writing like this such as anger or depression.
