I wish I could have taken you up
on that offer for a ride from the airport,
but the night skies in the east
were bursting with red,
so I thought that everything would be fine
in the morning.
Too caught up in my own anxieties
to notice the western clouds,
I guess we all make mistakes
a laugh is all we’ll ever need,
and at times I still forget to smile.
Airports aren’t the same
when you can’t sit at the bars.
Life is not the same
without you around,
