Ode to Lamentation
What is it makes us yearn?
Lonely in peculiar ways?
Is it only hearts of Romantics
That connect to life’s gauzy haze?
What of a past we must give up?
Nights in love’s joyous cloud?
Is it so simple to pass and merely
Become one with the crowd?
What mocks us most in life?
The mistakes we made in our pace?
The glory that might have been?
Or the wrinkles upon our face?
Does dimension lie beyond this orb?
Does Heaven or Hell Await?
Tis written, ‘ours not to know’?
Doth then we yield to fate?
