Whispered Goodbyes

I watched as you went carrying that sack
And wondered to myself if you’ll ever come back;
But I said not a word, slipping out of hold
Running towards you,taking a chance to be bold;
Only when I reached a fence did I fully understand
That even though I’d reached, you’d never take my hand;
I stood for a moment, watching that plane go
Just hoping it’d stop or pause for a second or so;
But neither came and time flew by
Leaving me here with my whispered goodbyes…✈

  1. Beautiful but sooo sad. My dad use to work around the world and we’d go watch him leave on the plane – this brought tears to my eyes remembering how much I use to wish that he’d change his mind and stay home instead but of course he never did – such is life.

    1. You guessed that absolutely right! The idea behind penning this was that of a little girl and her father while the latter was going away for work; to capture the mundane yet significant things in life. Thank you so much for your kind words💖
