TO MY LITTLE SON, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I cannot lose the thought of you
Last Line: With you so far away.
Subject(s): Longing; Travel; Journeys; Trips


I cannot lose the thought of you;
It haunts me like a little song;
It blends with all I see or do
Each day, the whole day long.

The train, the lights, the engine's throb,
And that one stinging memory:
Your brave smile broken with a sob
Your face pressed close to me.

Lips trembling far too much to speak;
The arms that would not come undone;
The kiss so salty on your cheek;
The long, long trip begun.

I could not miss you more, it seemed;
But now I don't know what to say:
It's harder than I ever dreamed
With you so far away.
