Sheryl Joy P. Olaņo

Departure pronounced, luggage
In a strong grip
An armor of unwavering doe eyes
And a splash of a frozen tight-lipped smile
Unmasked, an unwilling victim
Of change and time

A nagging thought, a refusal
For what she had to be
Mere wishful thinking, mere memories
In the twilight of her years

A face...a man of the brown eyes
To remain nameless in her lips
Seemed to shake her

A sigh of resignation
Burdened by unshed tears
Couldn't disguise
A little spark inside her
For another day

Yet, tomorrows in a foreign land
A promise unbound
A new beginning, a new life
All hers to take
Her mind could take her to places...
But with him would remain her heart
