It all passes

"It all passes" poetry by Roshan James, Wellesley, Ontario, Canada


One day I will tell you
About the tears bittersweet
And exactly how many nights
I dreamt without sleep
One day I will talk
And say it was hard
And then other times
I felt like flying
One day this will fade
To a story with scars
And when I figure out who you are
I’ll want to ramble long
Into the moonlit hours
Over wine and butter tarts
For now, for a while, I’ll keep it close
I’ll wear it ‘til we both get tired
Of struggling to be enough
We’ve both been strong enough
In our trying and our loss
To know it passes
It all passes by
