Future perfect (in Sapphic Verse)

Patience, patience, my sweet friend, patience, slowly

recall all the memories of the days when

we ran blindly unconcerned with grief, dying -

our current partner.


We stand in a river that flows not away

also not towards anything - also nothing

is here nor there -  all is just something

remembered my friend.


Recall recall those old days my friends and then

they will return be assured - again nothing

has happened that hasn't happened also

has never happened.


Sweet friend recall joy is upcoming to you

if you wait and memory's former promise

will have been fulfilled in anticipation -

in future perfect.
