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?
