Everything we worry about
never seems to happen.
But every time we say goodbye,
I quiver and shake.
Even if the sun is shining,
it’s raining cats and dogs.
I keep reminding you to drive safely
and call me when your plane lands.
It’s because I love you—
if you disappear,
I’ll be left at the edge
of the Sargasso Sea
with no place to go.
I will vanish.
