Sorrow Runs Into Joy

Sorrow runs into joy

And the world turns upside down

When the young soul leaves the body

Seemingly before his turn was done

*

Love falls into heartache

When all new hopes are dashed

When the smallest hand to grip

Is taken from us far too fast

*

Hope jumps over despair

When we reach out to others’ hearts

And step deep in there with them

The murky storm of life

*

The yin, the yang of life and love

so hard to understand

Where life abounds so clearly

Then death she closes in

*

Sorrow, she slams into joy

And breaks apart the soul

Into a million fragmented pieces

Reflecting the universe in every shard.
