The Reality of Transfers

A sweetly solemn sense of parting
Fills the world with hesitation
Heavy heartfelt memories
Of my life the last eight hours
So fun, so free
So full of life
As all things
In the hands of man must do
And landing in the hands of God
For an undetermined time of separation
A memory longing to be more
And hope fighting through the ominous insecurity
Of goodbyes to those you love
A shaking hand
A trembling heart
A faith filled smile of understanding
Admiration and love
The beautifully painful knowledge
Of your own uncertainty
And the happiness
Of living a day thatís worth it
There will always be tomorrows
And trusting
I smile and say goodbye
