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.
