Poem #54: It Will Be Different

It Will Be Different

I keep thinking I am 
In love 
With my dreams, even 
Though I've never swum 
In clear, turquoise waters.
I keep thinking 
It's going to get better--
Spring will be soft and 
Warm again; diamonds will burn 
Like fire on my pale earlobes;
And the bitter, fragrant coffee
I pour will stay hot longer 
in my favorite crimson mug.
I keep thinking 
I will see that
     --though my life
     hasn't been simple
     or easy--
The not knowing 
What it will look like 
Six months from
Is what frightens me most.
