PSALM OF ENDINGS

 

  • Parting is always hell whatever they say:
      in life as in conversation ending is always hard.
     
  • Closure, they say, is needed to solve the problem:
      as if pain will go away, like shutting a book.
     
  • Endings are deadly difficult, palled in guilt:
      full of grief and sadness for a past that is gone.
     
  • But to let go is also important, to look to the future:
      guard the distance between you, like healing the wound;
     
  • there’s a place in every funeral to rejoice:
      at the fall of the final curtain we applaud.
