I saw you waiting for the shuttle,
Your embrace caught my wandering eye…
With suitcase you turned, eyes swollen,
From your painfully sad goodbye.
Alone and so embarrassed,
How I witnessed that you cried…
You bravely set off for the airport,
Feeling both hope and death inside.
You knew you’ve found your perfect dream,
This love for your whole life long…
Fearing now while called away,
You may return to find her gone.
I wanted to ease your discomfort,
Console you and wipe your tears…
Tell you not to be embarrassed,
I have lived your pain for years.
