And the self - same well from which your laughter rises was often - times filled with your tears.

In the unscarred heaven they leave no wake;
And the eyes forget the tears they have shed,
The heart forgets its sorrow and ache.

With some pain is fraught:
Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought.
