We risk our lives

We risk our lives
every time
we connect
in love.

We risk our lives
every time
we connect
in life.

The depth
of our love
is measured
by the depth
of our loss.

In the end,

we find,
the net gain
in our lives
is greater than the loss,

that buoys us
in our grief
and we begin
to heal.
