Why does this happen?

That the pious soul, who tells everyone to forget all their sorrows and live happily, never gets their own happiness?

Why does this happen?

That those who make everyone laugh are never able to laugh on their own?

Why does this happen?
That those who wipe tears from everyone's eyes always hide their own tears?

Why does this happen?
That those who fulfil everyone's wishes never get their own wishes fulfilled?

Why does this happen?
That those who hold everyone's hand while walking always walk alone on their own?

Why does this happen?
That those who give company to everyone always remain lonely?

Why does this happen?

Such is the pain of those who know how to love well.

This is a great example of beautiful yet heartbreaking poems. Hopefully it can remind people to be kind to others that have been kind to them. Thank you very much for writing and sharing this! :)
