It is not a romantic locomotive

black and surrounded by smoke

That departs today



It is not the lips of a loved one

prepared with accuracy and care

That depart today



It is not the words goodbye

that once spoken, wound

That depart today



It is not a tight embrace

prepared with sad emotion

That departs today



Boarded and ready to leave

is 365 days of the past

That departs today

 

2008

That arrives tomorrow
