- I wish I could claim to have written this, because it says so many things so well. This poem was posted on Christmas day by a person whose words are often worth pondering.
There is some heartbreak in the very best of days getting up early or staying up late, walking the streets of waking houses with the lights coming on and you can almost hear the oohs and aahs and you forget, you forget that you’re on the outside pretending that you aren’t looking in
There is some heartbreak on the happiest days for people we never got to know but we hear in the back of our mind a whisper that we should know them or should remember, should remember people in a war zone that isn’t their in-law’s house people like us bringing down memories from the top of the closet and there are never as many memories as you thought there were never as many memories as you wanted
There is some heartbreak on the happiest days a sweet secret of a heartbreak that we share a sweet secret of a heartbreak for someone we love and that secret makes us smile for someone who isn’t there
