We call it time

We lose when we love, 
retain the dripping remnants 
of losses we keep.  

We call it time, 
but cease to count the raging moments 
of a sandstorm 
when it cries. 

And then we say goodbye, 
a final soreness of heart 
that in braveness, 
says "no"...

    Thanks, Christine. This was particularly heartfelt as the poem is about the one year anniversary of losing my best friend. And it kinda hurt.
