Glimpse

 

Untitled design (4)

I see how your smile never quite

reaches the sadness

that swims in your eyes.

And I can’t help but wonder

at the stunning beauty

in your sorrow

and the untold strength

of your spirit,

and how it is always

the most precious souls

who cloak their melancholy in courage.
