He cried
following me to the gate
bottom lip speaking
for a sadness from within
the car lights shining briefly
on a solemn wave goodbye
his feet stuck deep in sorrow
not turning
just asking why

Why would my Dad leave me
on a dark and stormy night
don’t go Dad
he’d whispered
holding on with all his might
the car lights only shone forth
never shining back
yet I can still see him standing motionless
don’t go Dad
please come back
