Sweet Sorrow



How could we ever have other lives,
with other companions, pets,
if we couldn't outlive them?
How can we get free
to begin again
if the bonds are too tight,
if memory never fades,
if loss never compels
and makes room for
fresh love?
Who can possibly be content
with one life in a lifetime?
