East Coast West Coast

It is the loss
in love
that scares me –
that vulnerable space
of leaving
at least some
piece of my heart
in the hands
of all those I love.

This risk unnerves me
feeding the fear
I will have nothing left.

But I hear
there is a narrow path –
the kind that leads
a soul
to gaze with grace
across her life
and see
that much was lost
much was gained.
