Losing and Missing

Not everything
that’s missing
Is lost.

Things fall and break,
Shift and take,
bounce and stay

Like memories,
And life.

Not everything that’s lost
Gets missed

Like bad memories,
And heartache.

But losing and missing
The ability to let go,
To profoundly love,
To experience no regrets —
That’s avoiding
To live fully in the NOW.

  1. It’s true: there are things we don’t want back.
    BTW, the first lines reminded me of verse in Lord of the Rings about Aragorn: “not all those who wander are lost.” I know it’s not what you’re going for, but I thought I’d mention it. πŸ™‚
