My Life Will Go On


my life will go on
for the time being.

two friends
will not see the sunset
tonight.

the clean up has begun
but the vision
will remain.

two friends,
only hours ago,
laughing,
reading letters from home.

the sun still shines
hot
upon the sandbags
where the blood has dried.

i will let the memory
crawl across
this hopelessness
i am burdened with.

for the time being
my life will go on.

I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea,
Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes;
