Poem January 24th


the following poem, if one would call it a poem? i have had for years and then some. someone wrote it and sent it to me... its a bit strange, not sure if i have posted it before or not, seem to be having a bit of de ja vu now!

maybe someone even knows of its origins, or maybe the person wrote it himself, i am not sure...

The sad sad voice in this heart of stone sings a song of a love that once was known.
This song now changed from its merry key, has, in its way no dint of misery. For on its way to composition, joy was known and joy was hidden.

As joy was shown, this sad sad song, sung with love by this heart of stone, must release the tears of a joy once known.

If joy was hidden, it must now be shown, to reveal the treasure locked in a memory of a love once known.

For love once shown is love alone, enduring in this heart of stone, let not treasures, both known and hidden be shut in and unbidden.

The sad sad song of joy sings its way from a misery to a life with sweet sweet memory, for joys, both shown and hidden, are treasures between us given.
