There's Always Something


There's always something ending that I have to let go of,

something arriving that I have to be brave enough to meet,

and something still on its way

that I have to be patient and wise enough to wait for.

Life is a little here and a little gone.

A little now, a little not yet.

A little hard, a little soft,

and only fully understood by the part of me

that is okay with not being able to understand it all.
