Departure

Departure

I felt your eyes drift from me
There, where life placed you
On this, the last day of winter
Brushing the season from your hair
Calm and quiet as I left and l,
Wondering, as you looked into the snow
Why the light
Fell....in just this way, on your face
Just here....now, soft as my breath
How the world kept moving forward 
with merciless grace
When in my heart everything was suddenly loud
Bruised with this
Wanting you in my arms, like a firebird
Destined never to be mine
