the poem as
an MP3 file. Alpha List
|Maybe there's a sorrow that you hide,
One that never lessens, never leaves,
That sings a lonely counterpoint inside,
Hard to hear but for the one who grieves.
Each child unborn is not therefore unloved,
Redeemed by tears that through dry streambeds move
So quietly the pain can scarcely breathe.
