Kisses on Cheeks in the Dark

Of the leaving night;
Of small talk and smiles
to make light 
of aching hearts
leaving warm bodies in warm blankets behind

Of kisses on cheeks in the dark;
Of shuffling feet and a little spark
that the light in the doorway makes;
Of a practiced good-bye 
in hushed tones and mime,
once more, lest my little child wakes

Of promises; Of time
and time again turning back to see her at the window sill;
Freezing moments, trigger-happy making stills
in the mind
for the heart;

But time runs out,
A car drives in;
I depart
