For those who tried

Each day as I tuck my last thought into bed
I collapse into a warm but questioning embrace,
Did I try my best?
I ask of myself
In my heart is a special reserved place
for trying hard
even if it means not getting what I wanted
there's some comforting warmth in
effort
that no win can replace
Tonight I will tuck myself in with ease
I tried hard
Even though I did not succeed
I tried hard to make the best of each moment
Stay present and breathe in the wholly unbelievable truth
that I was there with someone I care about and someone who loves me
I didn't want to be anywhere else
Especially not a few days from now
