Sitting just across from me, you looked away pretending the whole time. But I already knew who you were.
Walking towards our life together, you focused straight ahead. But I already knew we could never turn back.
Raising our babies amid chaos and fun, your face spoke of exhaustion. But I already knew every surrender only brought us closer.
Holding your hand as you slipped away, the night wrapped around us one last time. But I already knew I would find you again.
No doubt sitting just across from me.
No longer even pretending.
