Sadness at the Sound

Sadness at the sound

buildings crumble, fall

crashing to the ground

as the earth shakes, trembles

mothers cry

where are their children

fathers cry

where are their families

such loss, such terrible loss

as the sound of mourning grows

wailing from the depths of broken hearts

fearful of the maybe

knowing the what is

as the earth shakes, trembles

and buildings fall

hiding the wounded

muffling the sounds of their cries

hiding the dead

who will cry no more

sadness at the sound

of those who search, calling out into the rubble

moving what blocks vision

as they seek those that live

tears of loss falling for those who do not

sadness at the sound

of broken hearts for broken lives
