If It Hadn't Been

We wouldn't be here if it hadn't been for the rain,
the wind-loosened trees (this quiet shelter); and I
wouldn't tell you how nothing wonderful ever matches
its memory, how not going home is a sadness we
all carry. I wouldn't tell you what I know about losing,
how what we keep is never all that we need.
