    Smile I was every kind of sad there is.

    Hello. Would you please tell me what the underlined sentence means in this context below.
    I don't follow why the writer use "there is" in the sentence.
    Please help. Thank you.

    ----------------from a children's novel, Honest Truth by Dan Germeinhart
    I thought about what was coming. About what I was walking toward, up ahead there in the clouds.
    About where I was going, and what I was doing.
    I was every different kind of sad there is. And every kind of determined, too.
    In all that I thought of, I never thought of stopping.
    I was so lost in thought I didn't notice when the truck pulled up beside me and slowed down.
