we walked the length of the driveway in silence.
It felt wrong to speak when the neighborhood
was still dark and asleep.
What was there to say anyway?
It wasn't morning yet.
We kissed good-bye
thru the open car window.
My fuzzy blue robe was wet from
leaning against the morning dew on the door.
If I knew that was going to be my last kiss
I would have lingered a moment longer.
Maybe brushed my teeth and combed
thru the knots in my hair.
I smiled, waved and mouthed "see you soon"
when you drove away.
I never saw you again.
