Unwanted Endings and Yet the Sun Still Shines

Unwanted endings, yet the sun still shines.
Doors nailed shut, didn't get to say goodbye.
So hard to see beyond these boundary lines.
So hard to hear beyond the cries and sighs.

What if nature decided it was time
to give us time to let our old world die?
Perhaps this temporary pause is fine,
an opportunity to reset my

life, time. Perhaps this dropping solitude,
retreat, this closing door, will clear debris
from my mind. Perhaps the stillness today

will overcome my fears, improve my mood.
I'm trying to learn how to let things be.
I'm trying to learn how to, presence, stay.
