HANNAH! Welcome back! Seriously, so good to see your new poems and I hope you've been well :)
This hit hard and I really like how you tell it like it is, like a fact, stating what is right in front of us and WHY it's so scary. The first and last line being the same gave even more of an impending feeling that we can try and try to overcome and find that closure, yet at the end of the day, nothing is guaranteed. And maybe in realizing and understanding how fragile we are, we can learn from this and be more gentle with each other.
I almost found comfort in this? In the way that we all are dealing with an unknown, and I'd rather admit that and admit that we're broken instead of hiding those fears, because that's real to me. I don't want to go through life pretending and even if it means hurting more, and realizing some things are doomed, it's like we can allow ourselves peace that there is only so much we can physically do and change as humans.
