Poetry

Sing my child, just sing…

image

 

My mama told me once,
Child, just sing through your sorrow.
Though the tears fall down like rain,
Sing my child, just sing.

My mama told me once,
Child, just sing through the pain.
Though the heart hurts like it’s breaking,
Sing my child, just sing.

I tried mama’s trick once,
But I couldn’t sing, my voice was shaking.
So I hummed and hummed as best I could,
To ease my heart from aching.

I never told mama I tried her trick,
I wonder if she remembered her advice.
I’m not sure she ever knew
How diligently I tried and tried.

I could never sing when I’m in pain,
But at least I can hum a tune.
Though the tears keep falling down like rain
Mama’s advice always ran through.

Just sing through your sorrow,
Just sing through the pain.
Though tears fall and the heart is breaking.
Sing my child, just sing.

  1. Love this poem 🙂
    I sing when I am happy. That sounds weird, but sometimes I catch myself singing and then I think: “Oh yea, I am feeling better than I thought!”
    When I am down I always listen to my favourite songs, though. And then end up humming along through my tears.

  2. At first, I thought I’m seeing the song titled “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga because of the “My mama”, I even sing it out loud when I saw it but I was surprised when the next words aren’t what I’m expecting. All in all, what a nice poem you have there. ♡

  3. This was definitely a special and unique solution to how to sing while crying. There are songs which suggest to sing or play music while crying. Hummingmakezso much more sense! Great poem with effective lyrics or lines. 🙂
