I have penned many brilliant letters to you,
In my mind.
I remember the moments spent together
While the world stopped rotating.
I told you of wonderful adventures I led
to lands unknown.
I built cities of bamboo, brick, ice and people
Who breathed and lived within.
I designed days and nights of endless happiness
To keep me and you.
I dreamt of you and your lover and her child
And I stayed silent.
I saw the distant look in your eye and the
Hesitation in your heart.
I knew your desire to live a fabled life
Cradled in the bough of a tree.
I created a silent goodbye on air paper,
And sealed the envelope with love.
