There is sadness every hello

Happiness in goodbye

We can sit and wonder where it’s gone

Or even ask why.

I cause fear in the unknown

Terror over nothing

Sadness in times of getting somewhere

Nothing when you sing.

The lack of words when you are writing

A voice that never speaks

Sound when you beg for silence

A hose that always leaks.

The events that forge a relationship

That ends in bitter pain

I’m sorry I forgave you

I’m sorry for the rain.
