Flying North

flying north

i wait for you
on this wide plane
separated by 2.4 hours
all these miles
and the distance
that grows with the
skin
legs
arms
years of your lives...
already i can feel
your strong
sweet hands
on my shrinking shoulders
hot breath on my skin
your sweet loving tears
cool on my neck
and my heart will slow
in your presence
because your shadows
offer me a softness
a harbor
a life
that i have been building
for you
son
daughter
all these years
so that when you
stand on this foundation
of life
you will never stumble
only flourish
my babies
my heart
my life...
