Saying Goodbye - Anthony West (Submitted by Jessi-Ann Bettcher)

So soft
the brief touch of your lips
on my cheek.

Was I almost intruding?

"Look after yourself"
should have been
"I love you!"

Then the Jumbo flew over
my head
and I shouted my love
above the roar
and thundering thrust

...as if you'd hear.

Through the clouds in my eyes
I watched you fly away
and wished I'd been born with wings.
