Show Up

When all
That happened
Happened

Some
Showed up
And showed
Unconditional
Love

Some
Showed up
And stayed
Only as long
As I kept
My grief
Pretty

Some
Showed up
Took one look
At my shattered present
And hopeless future
And left

Some
Just didn't
Show up

It is hard
To show up
Sometimes

And when you do
Show up
And see pain
It’s hard to stay

It’s hard
To show up
And let
Things be
What they are

Hard
To show up
And show love
In the presence of pain
That you can’t explain
Or alleviate
Or fix

Hard to show up
At all

But especially hard
To show up well
And offer comfort
In ways that matter
