Not Every Hurt Can Be Healed

Not every hurt can be healed
not every ouch disappears
not every thing passes
not every song gets sung

No buts
or maybes
or otherwises
or elses

for not every ending is happy

if I have a gift it is this
this knowing 
this not flinching
this naming


when you come to the end
of your endings and 
not every fairy tale came true

if you want me to,
I can come up on your porch
and sit with you awhile
and not try to talk you out of the it
and we can sit with the it
in silence or in screaming
it will not care and neither will I
unless you need me to
