New Born

The shadows of sorrow deepen
The minor miseries and great
Unfold, slightly unexpected
And the great mystery is not this
But that somehow the weary eyes
See through it all (in general)
To some unfathomed promise
The grandchild still delights and
Is welcomed even though it’s known
His life must inevitably be littered
With regrets, lost friends, disease
And hopes scattered and disappointed
All this is known and understood
And yet the weary eyes don’t cry
But smile with joy untainted
