A moment in a memory …

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

that evening.

I wanted to –

lean into you

breathe you

know you

feel you.

A  late night rendezvous

in the midst of

sleepy travelers

TSA agents


jet fuel.

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.
