A Kiss For Him

“Mwuah!” I shout loudly.
I blow a kiss to him.
His hand flies up boldly,
Catching it.
He puts it in his pocket,
A token of our love.
He boards the bus assured.
I fear his pocket will tear.
I fear someone will steal it.
I fear he will forget it is there.
I fear he will discard it.
He looks out the window,
Eyes heavy with the pain
He knows I’ll have to bear.
I blow him one last kiss,
Just to be sure he knows it‘s there.

Wow this is great. I loved the emotion. But I think this can be universal for nearly any relationship. One thing, I didn't like the "Mwuah!" at the beginning. Its all so serious and that one word is kind of laughable. I would recommend finding a different word in its place.
