On a Plane to Bahrain

 

A seat

Empty beside me

The distant glow

Of the fires below

Your spirit in the smoke

Does form

 

I nestle into

Your right shoulder

You hold my head

And kiss my cheek

“It will be alright.” you smile

 

Yet the tears still fall

I blink and look again

you are not there at all
