Thank You

Dear Sadness,


Thank you.


Without you, I would be flying

And soaring way too close to the sun.

Without you, I would be undone.


Thank you, for grounding me.

A reminder that life won't go the way I deem,

That Happiness does not last

That sometimes I'm taking life too fast.


You give Clarity

A view most lacking regularity

when Happiness and Anger fall to errancy.


Your clarity sends me into a spree 

And forces me to see

The course laid out in front of me.


And while sometimes, Sadness, you're hard to read

You're really great at planting the seed

and allowing Passion and I to take the lead.


All my Love,
