Safe Trip Sam

My baby left
on the midnight flight
It was all rush and go
and I never feel 
like I say enough goodbyes.
Like, you never know.
That final hug, squeeze,
Steal the last glance,
he gives me that special smile,
there on the 5 minute drop off,
eye to eye, look away,
good bye. Look back.
Smile together.
Click, snapshot in my mind.
Head lights,
blinkers flashing,
the security guard 
looks my way.
Step back, away,
I take him in
one last time.
Car door,
waving through the sun roof,
looking back,
going, going, gone.
