I Know There’s A Word For It

April 12, 2013

I know it’s not closure. That’s for Hollywood films and writers who write themselves into corners.
It’s not acceptance. That’s for people far more enlightened than I.
I’m sure it’s not heavenly rest. That’s for literalists and believers.
It ain’t “living in our hearts” that’s for the poetically inclined and my life isn’t a poem.
I don’t think it’s explained by the laws of conservation of energy. I don’t pretend to be that smart.

What’s the word for living with it?

    those lines are quite a tribute.

    coincidentally, I just started reading Roger Rosenblatt’s “Kayak Morning: Reflections on Love, Grief, and Small Boats”. Beautifully written, spare, moody, interesting pacing, and very on-topic with your post.
