Written after a day dream that may someday come true, i just hope it will have a happier ending in real life.

Note: This is written about someone very dear to me and if there are parts in this you do not understand i won't be surprised, but i know he'll know what it means.

Standing at the airport

Our final moment’s here

I hold you close and kiss your neck

As I whisper in your ear

“You know I’m only leaving

For a better life for James

And although in separate countries

I’ll love you just the same”

Final boarding call announces

and out of my chest

my heart pounces

Squeezing tight and sobbing

“I don’t think I can let go”

You kiss me softly on the cheek,

Whispering “It’s ok, honey, I know”

I raise my head up slowly

And I look into your eyes

The time that I stay gazing

Has you taken by surprise

I feel my legs start trembling

As I back away from you

It’s not the way I want it

But its what I have to do

Why is it only me who’s crying

He shows no signs of being weak

But then I see him close his eyes

And a tear run down his cheek

Feels like my heart is breaking

With each step a little more

I just can’t bear to leave you

As I walk through departure’s door

Before I disappear for good

One last tender, loving kiss

Your soft sweet lips against my skin

That feeling I will miss

As I leave you sadly waving

Tears in my eyes turn to white light

Sitting back at my kitchen table

I awaken with a fright

Thank God it’s just a day dream

No need for all this sorrow

Perhaps it won’t be quite so sad

Standing at the airport

Thanks for your honesty, all comments negative and positive will be taken on board.
