I’m reminded
Of the past
The sad realization that
Only absolute distance
Or death
Will afford me relief
From those hard days,
Dark people and
Broken dreams.
I am thankful
For the joys interlaced
Among the shadows.
Yet the ruin to be found
Even as I rejoiced
Is painful beyond my relief.
You, even you,
Brought as much sorrow
As blessing
From the moment of our
First moment
And still
Sorrow just back there
A moment ago.
