The Runaway

( for T )

I will never know
where you were before you came to me,
and since you left, where you are now.

I only know that you are gone.

You didn’t give me the chance
to say so-long,
to wish you a safe journey.

No final embrace
to look into your face,
your eyes, your soul.

You probably don’t know
your life made mine
a little more whole.

Be safe, be well.
If our paths cross again,
only time will tell.

  2. t,
    your blog inspired me to write this one.
