Grief Before The Reason

There are moments that we know –
A girl on a bed, telling you she loves you –
a friend in the moonlight on a snowy street-
the third bite of a forty-dollar meal-
moments we know to savor, moments we
try to hold on to for a little longer, moments where
for all the joy obvious on their face, the grief is
hidden, a grain of salt in the sugar,
the fear that
this too will pass.
