Think by ... ..
We stood together
And awaited your flight.
Gate number 12
Was a gruesome beast.
The boarding attendant looked smug.
Pursed lips, and a tightly buttoned vest
Symbolized my sullen mood.
I did not want to speak,
For fear that I
Would waste the words.
So precious is this window of time
to say goodbye.
I will not say small words.
I want to tell you what my heart
Has resisted for so long.
Encaged is my love.
I want to beg you to stay with me.
Your wings have matured
And now you must go.
I want you to be free.
I will let you go
Without unfolding my heart.
I would never know
If you'd come back to me
Because you felt the same.
"It's small moments like these
That take up all the room in my heart."
These words ran through my mind
As I watched your plane depart.
