GRIEF

When the bad tidings they do knock on the door
Pain and heartbreak is all that abounds
When shattered heart screams and lamentingly roars
Harrowed bitter tears flow in those sounds

Such anguish, such loss, no one can explain
When cast adrift on the ocean of grief
Try as may want to deal with that pain
No way can be sought, not a sign of solace or relief

What comfort is there for to be found
When drowning in torrents of tears
Standing in a quake tearing apart ground
For now have gone, those once held so dear

And though doing fine, thoughts around do race
The soul still cries out it's call
Just for a moment to see hear and touch face
To say one last time,
I miss and still do love you all

===============================

(*Allwyn moves to stand by the side of the open graves. His face, a mask of sorrow*)

(*He takes up his Mandolin And Begin's to play a haunting Lament*)

(*Allwyn takes up the tune and sings with a voice full of sadness pain and loss*)
When the bad tidings they do knock on the door/ Pain and heartbreak is all that abounds/ When shattered heart screams and lamentingly roars/ Harrowed bitter tears flow in those sounds

(*He sings and plays such a tearful lament, Conveying to all the anguish he feels*)
Such anguish, such loss, no one can explain/ When cast adrift on the ocean of grief/ Try as may want to deal with that pain/ No way can be sought not a sign of solace or relief

(* Allwyn sings with a clear voice but the pain of loss is clear to hear in it *)
What comfort is there for to be found/ When drowning in torrents of tears/ Standing in a quake tearing apart ground/ For now have gone, those once held so dear

(*As Allwyn sings both his voice and the tune he plays are full of loss and longing*)
And though doing fine, thoughts around do race/ The soul still cries out it's call/ Just for a moment to see hear and touch face/ To say one ,ore last time, I miss and still do love you all.
(* the tune goes on few a few bars more and he hums the sad melody to a fade tears freely rolling down his cheeks*)

About this poem:
A song from the heart Of Allwyn Marcher, ( My alter ego in an Game of D&D), on the subject of grief

For any Interested below the song I have posted it again but the way other players would have seen it Verse by Verse in game,
Every thing in (* *) are to emote the song he sings
It's hard too convey feeling in a game when all *spoken* interaction between players is expressed in text.

In the real world I know this is not fantastically good But Allwyn was an amazing bard , His performance score was 62
But In games terms the performance of song brought a whole town to tears

Context He sang this song over his family's Graves. They were massacred in a Massive Orc and giant Uprising.
A fantasy world is not all "they lived happily ever after" you know
