The poetry of Kris Mercer


Sunshine Pills

The tears of sadness well up in my eyes.
I've said my farewells and all my goodbyes.

I'm leaving you all, there's a place I must go.
Where the sun always shines and the wind doesn't blow.

Love always runs smoothly and friends never part.
There's no such thing as a broken heart.

Where children don't argue and never do fight.
Where everyone's happy and wrong's always right.

I've tried as hard as I can to live day by day.
I've found it's too much, so I'm going away.



Inspired by the poem Farewell by Tennyson
