You were once my rock;
my solid foundation
but we shook and,
you erroded into single grains of sand,
gracefully slipping through the cracks of my fingers.
Sand like the seconds in an hour glass;
Our time is up.

I'm not sure why I like this poem so much. I think it's because I can completely relate to these feelings. Thank you for posting it.
