Poet’s Corner | At A Time


At A Time

I feel your loss
You are not here
You’re in a there
A place I cannot be
At least not immediately

We have certain times
When we are called
Before it happens
We stay in the here
Or the there

Depending greatly
On which one
Is meant to be
We’ll reverse the order
And begin again

We belong in one
Or the other
But never
At the same time
Always alternating

Just like here
And there
Being different
We are only in one place
At a time
