with time

"You need time," I told her,
and I knew that it was true;

"You cannot rush grief,
any more than you can
make the sun rise;

"What you can count on
is me being here all the way;

"And I do not have all the answers,
sometimes only more questions;

"But as you know, no one listens
better than I do;

"You hurt, I hurt,
and we will feel better one day,

"with time."

May 8, 2009, for Cristina.
