GETTING OVER
(5/20/18)

some things
are not
so easily
shaken

disease

divorce

death

can linger
for those
suffering

for those
left
behind

expectations
are not
so easily
adjusted

we want
what we
had

when what
we had
has ceased
to exist

we must
realize
our now

wipe
our eyes

our noses

know that
this
is all
there is

sometimes
the best
that can be
expected
is getting by
