Temporary Goodbye - Poem by Jerry Hidayat

It was four twenty
Departure was calling in
She dressed up real pretty
But this time, not for me

Elevator rattled reaching the ground
Ten to one felt so fast
Tight she was holding my hand
But I knew it wouldn't long last

Dried leaves blown away and fly
Cold breeze whispering my ears
She wanted me to always smile
But in my heart, filled only with tears

Saw an Audi waiting
Next to the tiled bricks
And there she went saying
'I'll see you next week.'
