Sorrow and Sadness (6)

The moon is low on the southland,
The frogs are asleep on the lake.
Did you know that tears run in rivulets
And hearts can repeatedly break?
-- Joan Baez. Time Is Passing Us By.

I'll be standing at a river,
Staring out across tomorrow.
And the bridge I need to get there,
Will be a bridge that I have burned.
-- Garth Brooks. Burning Bridges.
