Fleeting

I try to explain as best I can
not negating those feelings.
Those feelings which feel so final.
So permanent.


So young, you are, I want to say.
So strong, you feel.
So permanent.


They are fleeting.


I can list one, two, three, four
those who came before.


Further back I can go,
one, two, three, four, five.
Oh, and six.


Those I loved.


With all my heart.


Decades later,
it is so easy to see.


Fleeting, those feelings.


But I remain.


And so will you.
