The Saddening Morning


The morning of my departure was depressing
Opening the blinds and peeking out through the window
The early sky was even saddened by my choice of leaving
I questioned myself, am I doing the right thing?
Looked over at my loved one to see what he'd say
He said nothing, but he stared soulfully into my eyes
Why must she go? He thought to himself, I love her so
Truly, madly, deeply
Do what you have to do, I say while rubbing her hand
Pull her into a warm embrace
She smelled of vanilla lotion and toothpaste
All too familiar scent that I'd grown so accustomed to in two months
I will miss him dearly, I think to myself, he's the best man ever
Please come back, he whispers into my ear
I promise, I respond with tear filled eyes
The morning sun slips back into the clouds
And sheds raindrops as we exchange last hugs and kisses
