I have a new job,

it involves being away from home a lot

and every time I think about the travel

another airport, another hotel room

I think of one thing

leaving at home

that dreamy face

sparkling eyes

a twinkling smile

and soft curls to her hair

and I carry with me

a work laptop

with her face looking at me from from my background

11 years finished yet? She asks when I’ll be home again

and now

another airport day dream…
