Mind the Gap

It’s easy to get up

But it’s hard to get up again

The blows of grief 

Bring the double edged sword

Of loss of possible futures 

And loss of pieces of the past

The blows of grief

Bring the unwelcome reminder

That we are not in control of much

That there is more that is uncertain that guaranteed

The blows of grief

Bring to the surface

The gaps between the person we had hoped we would become 

And who we are in this moment
