Silver Linings

Melancholy clung to him like skin.
An abusive father, a difficult childhood.
Into his cloud of sadness, she walked in. His silver lining.
In the years of bliss with her, the sun was just breaking into his cloud, when death snatched her away, at childbirth.
A new cloud of sorrow. The tiny baby in his arms, his new silver lining.
