Goodbye, With Love - Poem by Leonard Dabydeen

and then…
the eyes did not blink
as I watched the wings
of the Canada Airways jet
turned in the northern direction on the runway
and the wheels began to gather speed
like an eagle in its moment of flight
each moment my heart pulsated faster
than nanoseconds before
as the lift-off became imminent
and drone of sound
kept me silent
like a coffin being lowered
in its final recluse
and in the moment of flight
I raised my right hand in gesture
only to wish you
blessings on your journey
and scribed in the palm of my hand
were words I will cherish
till the end of time:
Goodbye, with Love.
