I saw it in my mother’s eyes when she scolded me.
I saw it on the airport
As they kissed and bidded goodbye.
I saw it in the hallway,
while he watch her go away.
I saw it in grocery bags,
and never thought cash can
be turn into love.
I saw it how it was spoke in a mother’s lips,
As she animates his son’s funny tricks.
I saw it my Father’s silence
though I know, his heart was ripped.
I saw it when my sister cleans the dishes
Cause my brother is going home late.
To my best friend, I saw it in our coffee dates.
Endless conversation, all laughter, no fakes.
I saw it wiring over the air, linking him to her.
Like that great big sky they share and sleep under.
I saw it as the readers gasp in their horror books.
I saw it on the writer’s paper.
I saw it in every teacher’s hand
filled with chalk smudge.
I saw it in every place
But the World cared so less
these past few days.
