Days of Sorrow
We live close to the stars,
But closer by the days:
From times which have long gone
Till the dawning of tomorrow.
Consider, for one moment,
The stars and the days, piled high:
The tortured sky.

Stephen, I could feel the sorrow in this poem. I could resonate with your consideration and it evoked certain poignant emotions in me. Very well written!
