House of Countless Secrets

This is the House of Countless Secrets
With rooms for shared regrets
Where a being can try any remedy
That may help it to forget

It is a house of tired sad liaisons
Where the sad weary blind
With rare and true compassion
Seek help from other weary blind

And they couple in their miseries
Until physically spent
And they talk of things of life
And they vow to relent

And change their ways of living
To give as well as receive
Maybe for a momentous instant
Spare just a moment to grieve

For the others sad and lonely
The confused and the lost
Who somehow got to this house
Without considering the cost

This is the House of Countless Secrets
That has seen waterfalls of bitter tears
Has absorbed that pain and misery
Over so many long relentless years

Sometimes there is hope and peace
Sometimes in a lonely dusty room
A mind will achieve some harmony
And a flower all too briefly bloom
