Sorrow's Bane

Sorrow's Bane

A Poem by Ed Schimdt

Love is the one thing
That keeps our spirits whole
When Sorrow comes a knocking
With hurts that touch our soul


When our world falls around us
Darkness fills our dreams
It’s Love that lifts our spirits
Bridging Sorrow's streams


Love calls us from the brink
Of being swallowed by the stream
Dispels depression
And warms us in it’s gleam


Love helps us through the horror
Of love lost or led astray
Through mans trespass
Or angels spirit them away 


Love comes to give us comfort
To wipe away the tears
Love will shield our spirits
When Sorrow's shadow nears


Love’s light whisper
Will stifle Sorrow's gain
In life’s losses
Love is Sorrow’s bane

Love is everything. It can shatter you and break you. Great write, I enjoyed every line of this. Welcome to the cafe. :)

Hm. This is an incredible, if not intriguing, work. To be blunt, I love the way that It spells what love is about so truthfully. The recurring theme in each stanza is sorrow, which is driven away by love. This theme is spelled out beautifully with the flow of the words, line by line.

"It's Love that lifts our spirits
Bridging Sorrow's streams."

Great work!
