The Same Side

One thing to remember
when things get rough
is this:

we are on the same side,
however it may feel,
however it may seem,

we are
on the same side.
We care for

each other,
look out for
each other,

and have for a very long time.
Still…it is not certain
we will continue

hand in hand, walking
down the same road
speaking of dreams, of life;

it may be this
is the last, and so
I savor this uncertain moment

and the next
if there should be one.
I roll its flavor

across my tongue
and swallow.
