Silver Streak

Today I watched you leave,
In a silver streak,
Heading with purpose,
For a different tomorrow.

My heart waved good-bye,
But my arms were frozen at my side,
And all that I should have said,
Was being poured into the wishing well of "what ifs."

So in silence I watched the silver streak become a gray dot,
Until the gray dot was nothing more
Than just another point in the horizon.
     A horizon that's always in my sky,
     But one that I never seem to reach.

Today I watched you leave,
In a silver streak,
And all that was left
Was a tear,
An ache,
And a final good-bye.
