Morning's Goodbye

January 15, 2008
By Takiea Haynes, Ayer, MA

The sun has come,
Bearing an abundance of gifts.
First light toys with my eyelids
Warming my face.
An unwanted sign of daybreak.
With it come reminders
Of a long kiss goodnight,
A savored bittersweet memory.
My thoughts gather
Into a beaming smile;
The one you’ve always adored.
In that moment before
We must come to our senses,
Without hesitation,
I reach out to you,
And seize the hand imprinted
By my own.
These few seconds we have,
I cherish.
In only a moment,
Everything that was
Will be lost, locked away.
Our lips meet,
Sealing the end.
