I am happy,
laughing with my best friends,
I stare off into the distance thinking :
"Man, this is going to be a good year."
Christmas rolls around the corner.
I spend time with my loved ones,
not close to my friends.
I come back expecting great happiness,
but only meet sadness and loneliness.
I am no longer laughing with my friends,
I am now watching them laugh.
I sit here staring at everyone around me,
they are happy.
Will they every
experience my pain?
Happiness comes with a price.
When will my great sadness end?
When will it measure up to my great happy moments?
I sit here waiting for the world to be normal again,
I guess I will be waiting for a long time.
Author Notes: To experience great happiness you must pay the price of experiencing great sadness.
Hope you guys enjoyed this poem even though it is sad.
