today so soon tomorrow

Endings
    begin at the beginning.
Between hello
and goodbye,
    we stand raw
and exposed
    sailing on swells
of introspection
    pain
       love
          hope
     each other . . .
friendships forged in
all that
    and more.
And I have often wondered
    where ~
when time moves along
     ~ else there is to go
but up on the roof
    to dance in the saddest
tears that ever fell.
