Hide the Suitcase

Posted: April 30, 2016 in Fatherhood, Parenting, Poetry, Separation

How slowly can I make the door close
To catch one last glimpse of your face in the dark?

Softly saying “Goodnight daddy, have a safe flight”

Your “I love you” echoes in my ears as my legs, like lead

Walk slowly down the hall

In this moment

Every ambition, every purpose, every goal

Pales in comparison to the anticipation 

Of hugging my little (and not so little) champions again

And then how quickly will I make the door open 

To clear the path for your sprinting embrace
