Sonnet 070

It isn’t easy to smile when you’re sad,

or be merry when your heart is breaking.

It is very hard to stand on your ground,

when everything you see is collapsing.

How can you ever find light for guidance,

or have faith in such sorrowful darkness?

No hope remains, an act of cowardice-

of trust upon His majesty’s kindness.

It’s never easy to see someone sob,

or hear somebody fall from misery.

Hence, we find courage for the sake of love.

We rise again to kiss darling’s cry.

Indeed, a hardship to carry the world.

But in love’s name, nothing is such a load.
