Sorrow Soothed


I saw the beaded pearl form
On her melancholy face
The drawn lines and trembling lip
Poised with aching grace

For a moment drawn with breath
She held her shaky pose
Emotion welling in her breast
Filled with grief and sorrows

I felt a heady longing
To wipe away her tears
To soothe the sad and sorrow
And calm her whelming fears

So I moved beside her trembling form
Then smoothed her straying hair
A kiss to give her comfort
As I whispered I was there
