“Both Your Umbrella and Your Rain”

The hands to soothe,

the words that move

the deepest aches away.

The hands that fight,

that dig at night

an unforgiving grave.

Negligent

of life’s promise,

We smile despite the pain.

Makes me wonder how a life is lived

As both the umbrella and the rain.
