What it means to worry

What does it mean to worry about someone

who used to worry about you? Is it counted as loss?

When time turns against a man

and seems to be flowing in the wrong direction

losing traction and grip upon the road.

What does it mean that I now worry about him?

He’s always been capable and sure-footed

able to make me laugh in an instant.

What does it mean when he can no longer

hear me tell him I love him?

What does it mean when I start to worry

that the end is closer than it once was?

There are things one can’t prepare for.

What does it mean to worry about loss

when it’s inevitable?
