Leaving

The shriek of a preschooler as she went Marked the wisdom imperative for keeps; The pause for dawn after taverns well spent Started a bond to be kept as she sleeps. The crisp breathing space for the well behaved Served as a keen angle once she comes back; The farewell in an airport as she waved Bethought to long for the missed to unpack. The surrender of duty that brought shock Infused the values in her to the next; The parting from the dearest seemed as mock Unsealed the despair she purely rejects. She may learn saying goodbye the hard way But then, would be granted with a bouquet.
