Sharing a Poem

I came across a beautiful poem written by a dear family friend. It speaks to us who live with chronic pain.

Thank you for sharing this poem with me Mario. I bet you are surprised I still had it. 🙂

CLOUDS GONE BY

By Mario Poet Robinson

“CLOUDS GONE BY”

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN DRAWN TO A CLOUD THAT GOES BY

AND WISHED THAT WHAT YOU FELT COULD JUST DRIFT TO THE SKY..

LIKE WHEN THE PAIN THAT YOU BEAR BECOMES ALL YOU DISPLAY.

SO YOU SEARCH FOR OTHER THINGS THAT WILL TAKE IT AWAY…

AND HAVE YOU EVER REALLY WONDERED WHAT IT’S LIKE TO FLY,

TO THE POINT THAT YOU SMILE AND YOU TEAR AND YOU CRY…

LIKE ON THE DAYS THAT YOU FIGHT WITH THE HURT THAT YOU FEEL,

SO YOU DREAM OF OTHER THINGS THAT WILL HELP YOU TO DEAL…

BECAUSE OFTEN I AM DRAWN TO EVERY CLOUD THAT GOES BY

AND I DREAM THAT MY BURDENS COULD JUST DRIFT TO THE SKY…

LIKE WHEN THE HURT THAT I FEEL BEGINS TO SHOW ON MY FACE,

I SEARCH FOR SOMETHING ELSE THAT PUTS A SMILE IN IT’S PLACE..

SO YES, I DO WONDER WHAT IT’S LIKE TO FLY,

TO THE POINT THAT I SMILE AND I TEAR AND I CRY….

LIKE ON THE DAYS THAT I STRUGGLE WITH THE HURT THAT I FEEL,

I SIMPLY GAZE INTO THE SKY BECAUSE IT HELPS ME TO HEAL…

BECAUSE OFTEN THERE ARE TIMES THAT I FIGHT TO BE FREE,

AND FAR AWAY FROM THE PAIN INSIDE THAT WHICH IS ME…

SO SADLY I SIT ALONE AND LET MY FEARS START TO SHOW,

AND THEN I BEGIN TO CRY SO MY TEARS START TO FLOW…

BUT EVERY CHANCE THAT I HAVE, WHEN A CLOUD GOES BY,

I DREAM THAT MY TROUBLES COULD JUST DRIFT TO THE SKY…

SO SURELY, I WONDER WHAT IT’S LIKE TO FLY,

TO THE POINT THAT I SMILE AND I TEAR AND I CRY…

BECAUSE OFTEN THERE ARE TIMES THAT I YEARN TO BE FREE,

AND FAR AWAY FROM THE PAIN INSIDE THAT WHICH IS ME…

A FOR THAT REASON, I AM DRAWN TO EVERY CLOUD THAT GOES BY,

SO I CAN DREAM THAT WHAT I FEEL JUST “DRIFTS” TO THE SKY…
