Old Photo

Tomorrow is coming

and what it will bring

will give you no reason

to rejoice and sing.

The news you have waited for

will come to your door

and you know it’s something

that you can’t ignore.

Bad news has a way

of cutting up the soul

then burying the pieces

in a dark hole,

leaving you distraught

and nowhere to go

except to sit down and

cry over an old photo.
