to the winged soul

today, everything changes.
you left and i stayed,
more than stayed,
stayed the same.
on your way, as the saying goes,
paving your life path -
leaving and leaving.

i cry for you,
you little one,
i cry for what we've lost
and what we continue to lose.

i love you,
you grown up one,
i love you for what we are
and the things we will never be.

today, everything changes.
she cried in your wake -
you left in a hurry, leaving her
the same, like me...
discontent, but only sometimes,
just knowing things will never change,
not for us.
