in that moment
i felt like i knew where eternity,
our hearts and our souls all lay.
i felt as though we had shared a lifetime of memories in the next fleeting
i was suddenly filled with an insufferable sadness
her warmth. and her being
how could i take them in and
where would i bring them
i felt lost knowing i didn’t have those answers
the weight of our lives to come
and the uncertainty of time looming over us
i knew, then, that we wouldn’t be.
