Lifes Laden Way

How has my heart
Wandered this way
Of sorrow by night
Grief by day?

How laden this path
My soul follows still
The tears are heavy
With broken will

Oh heart of hearts
Find you no peace?
Staring down still
At your empty sheath

The darkness of day
Is darker than night
It closes in slowly
Suffocating the light

Yet off in the distance
A silhouette shows
Something untouched
By this wind that blows

Though it bears scars
Of neglect of years
Forgotten, misplaced?
Not watered by tears?

What is this garden
Once fresh and green
Holding such life
Now riddled by weeds?

My heart does mock
How typical this shows
Of this laden path
That my heart does go

Oh garden you know
For you bear grief too
Of things overtaken
Of what sorrow will do

Of life choked out
By these hideous things
So tell me little garden
What song do you sing?

How is it you bear
By night and by day
The loss of what was
The beauty you gave

The silence is heavy
There seems no reply
Yet over my head
Comes a butterfly

He seems not to see
Anything but what is
For it is what he needs
That this little garden gives

So sorrow upon sorrow
Grief upon grief
My heart though broken
Does finally see

Life can be found
In the midst of loss
Beauty can survive
Deaths dear cost
