Bridge to Now

The thought of fear is worse
Than what must be its reality.
From initial tearing ache to the
Loose abandon of tears.
Comfort should be taken –
Retrospect shows: infinite instance
Of that which cannot be controlled. Yet,
Living can. It is near.
Like a bridge, rising up
Creating a new place between what
Is remembered and hoped.
Non- certainties, the silty depths murmuring below
The bridge bestows vantage,
And courage to experiencing
This fear, the pain of the then in now -
A reminder of things not cried for,
Now, fear that is free to form itself
Will change from ache to tears.
