Sad Songs


Where have all the sad songs
gone? When I was young I sang
the saddest songs; there was

a depth, a yin as well as
yang, like the love
of a minor chord, or a melancholy

walk by the sea –
and it was all so much bigger
than me. Something

tells me that I can’t be
ageing well, not when
all the songs sound the same,

where the tide never rises again

  1. Oh this is lovely and so true! Where have they all gone?!

    There is nothing to listen to, to make myself feel sadder when I am already sad! That is what I used to do and mainly with Roy Orbison, very, very .loud, or rhe Everley Brothers!! Lol

    You have taken me back!
