Touch of grief (A Poem)

It's not what you do,
but what You've left undone,
That gives you a touch of heartbreak,
through the wimpy starry night.

  • The tender words forgotten

  • The letters you failed to write

  • stones you might have raised,
    Out of a brother's way

  • The little bit of council neglected,
    in your haste

  • An helpful hand you own
    but can't afford to share

These little acts of kindness
So simply out of love,
These opportunities to be angels,
Which we all tend to find

  • They come in slow and silent

  • When hope is faint and tired,

  • And fate comes without warning, to
    serve it's bitter wine.

  • Now life is only too short, friend,

  • And sorrow is all too nice,

  • To suffer our slow compassion

  • That tarries till too late:
    And it's not the things you do,
    But those You've left undone,
    Which gives you a touch of grief,
    At the setting of the sun.

Sort:  

Thoughtful, what inspired you to wrote in this way?

So touching... this particular line "It's not what you do,
but what You've left undone,
That gives you a touch of heartbreak" is what i totally relate to

That's right friend....
most times, it's amazing what keeps our hearts afloat through the night.
