It was an airport like any other.
Yet this time so different.
You were –
all I saw
all I felt
all I needed.
We were –
suspended in time and space
between a state of
grace and bliss.
There were not enough minutes in the universe
I wanted to –
lean into you
A late night rendezvous
in the midst of
I never wanted to leave.
Instead, I wished to tenderly press my cheek against your face, forever.
With the hope it would stop the clock.
I turned back and watched you go.
All the while wishing for one more embrace.
Slowly I descended into reality
as you ascended into the sky.
Beauty in a moment and a memory.
