As you leave on a Jet Plane

I am still looking,
although I can’t see you anymore…

I know you had to go, and I had to stay…
I know it’s only for a while, and I’ll see you again…

I am still looking…
At a Jet Plane that’s taking you away from me ..

Did I love him a lot?
Did I miss him a lot?
I wish I remember,
Those unspoken words of that 3 year old me!

I am still looking…
At a Jet Plane that’s taking my Dad away from me…

I loved him a lot
I missed him a lot
I do remember
The role model of that 7 year old me!

I am still looking…
At a Jet Plane that’s taking my Uncle away from me…

I loved her, I know
I missed her, I know
I do remember
The second mom of that 8 year old me

I am still looking…
At a Jet Plane that’s taking my aunt away from me …

I loved them so much
I didn’t want them to go
I remember too well
The painful heart of a 9 year old me…

I am still looking…
At a Jet Plane that’s taking my cousins away from me …

Many years later I meet

A man who loves watching Jet Planes

But, I didn’t really see

The little child who’s sad to say goodbye

And, Love happened once
So who thought I’d love again

A lot older now
So who thought I’d fall that deep

Am I any wiser?
Well, who’d fall for a lover who had to go home!

And I am still hurting
After standing there alone
Helplessly watching

When a Jet Plane took off taking my love, and my life away from me!
