Of all the sad songs I ever heard,
This song has been the saddest of all,
Because the melody
Made of sighs and hiccups,
Touches the untouched
Chords of heart.
The rhythm of tears as they fall,
Tip top tip top…
On the bathroom floor,
Hazing the vision;
Which was once so clear.
The beating, the heaving,
Engulfing it all.
And the eyes joining in the rueful song;
Blinking, squinting-aiding the river
Composing the saddest melody of all.
