it was time
to go

no question

the air was
getting colder
the time was
getting shorter

he knew he had to leave

so he drew back
from her embrace,
zipped up his jacket,

and walked on

she followed
his form
with her eyes

by the confident way
he walked

would he
turn around
at least once?

would he look
and see her
looking hopefully
at him?

she watched him
until he turned
at the old
familiar corner

watched him

touch the wall

and look
straight at her

he smiled
blew her a kiss

and walked on

she smiled

let go
of the breath
she had
hung on to

wiped the
from her cheek

and moved on
to the rest of
her day
