Poem-Stranger's Song

Stranger's Song

I set  here thinking
of this morning
that started out with
so many tears
and so much gloom.

Why was my heart so sad
why did the tears fall
from my eyes
Did I know someone
I hardly knew
was about to die.

This world is crumbing
right before my eyes,
But few can see the
unseen tears of the
stranger in passing...
or hear the stranger
in passing sing.

Rest in peace dear soul
you have lived a life
of grief- now, you've
found eternal peace.

Thank you Mark.
This poem was written for someone 'I hardly knew.'
Who was killed hours before the poem was written.
That's how it ended up in my Heartsong's Poetry Diary.
