We risked it all and lost it

We risked it all
and lost it.
We are living the life we wanted
so why does the loss weigh us down?
Why is having each other
and shelter and food
not enough?
We thought we had nothing to lose
but we did.
We had peace, and confidence in ourselves
friends and some money
and best of all, hope.
Why do we have no hope left
even though we have each other
and ourselves?
But let us cling together, my love
and when we are done weeping
and each has stilled the beating of the other's heart
as the sun rises and the city feels more like home
maybe some vestige of hope
lying hitherto undetected in our hearts
will rise to the surface.
