Only a Memory

Wavy hair and big brown eyes,
Silly hats and coconut trees,
Sticky fingers and piggy-back rides,
Card games and lucky sunglasses,
Nighttime hide-and-seek,
A circle of protection,
In favor of the odds.

Passion, praises, and clapping hands,
Wild guavas and a salty sea,
Nothing unused or unshared,
Those less fortunate--those more blessed.

Phones, computers, and friends,
All in a distant world.
A tight bond formed,
as we shared Twizzlers (our only American food),
as we shared the most peaceful place on Earth,
as we shared God.

The sun sets behind the mountains.
The day is gone.
The bus is gone.
The plane is gone.
The terra firma is familliar.
The bond is gone.

Forever changed.
Never the same.
Always out of reach.
