Headed Home

August 11, 2012

Involuntary tears fall as takeoff begins

Why they cannot wait

For a more private moment

Is not for me to know.

The desire to be strength for her

Amidst the struggles of my own life

Tears were not a part of our conversations.

Unless they were hers.

Mine come later.

The loss, the grief, the pain, the desolation

Pages of large print, five inches from my eyes

Sadness not in short supply

The helplessness is not just hers.
