The Others

The Others

 

By Thom Hogan

 

A teardrop fell in the forest today.
Where it fell the parents know the way.

The pain of grief to the mothers,
Is a pain that is unknown to the others.

And a father’s grief,
To the others is brief.

Sadness is no good the others will say.
Move on, let go, tomorrow is another day.

Life is too short to linger in pain.
But our lives will stop again and again.

A teardrop fell in the forest today.
Where it fell we know the way.
