life is about

"Life is about love, last minutes, and lost evenings" - Frank Turner

life is about
awkward before parting pauses we didn't know would be …
                                 our last goodbyes

memories that laugh and cry

faces that fade in yesterday's apprehensive mists and
    forgotten or ignored "we'll get togethers"

life is about a "head-in-hands cry" - a breathless sigh

           a wondering why I ended this day without
a purpose fulfilled - without having lost at least one
                 " I tried"

Life is indeed about awkward pauses, the regret and resolve to try again, very touching write-
