As I bid goodbye to you,
I wonder if its a farewell.
I take a step closer,
Kiss you on your cheek
And turn around
To hide my tears-
A futile attempt.

I want you to not leave,
A desire I keep hidden
In the depths of my heart.
I want to run away.
It hurts to see you go
Will you miss me?
I wonder.

I walk with you to check-in
Like on auto-pilot
Emotions overpowering
Mind whirling,
Thoughts running wild
Voice caught in my throat
Hands numb.

Finally, it is time
For the one final hug,
Tears dried, muscles frozen.
You take my face in your hands
"This ain't farewell, just a
See you later". I smile and
Whisper back, "See you later, alligator"

Beautiful. I'd written something like this. Now who says only "heavy" words can have an impact xD
