#413 Hide And Seek - Poem by Jimmie Arrington

We said goodbye with a kiss,
A tight hug and a little prayer.
I quickly turned so she'd miss
My misty eyes starting to glare.

My boys don't quite comprehend,
'Bye bye' is just the words we speak.
So we'll have to just pretend
It's a long game of hide and seek.

Here I am now in my seat,
Soaring over mountains and lakes.
Inside I feel my heart beat,
The farther I get, the more it breaks.

It's a lot for me to stand;
These days will be dreary and bleak,
But if our plans go as planned,
I'll see you again in a week.

Who knows what the future holds,
There's no guarantees, I suppose.
Enjoy life as it unfolds
Because only the future knows.
