Dear Little Jersey

The days grow short

Time expands

Flashforward

Eyes closed

Still sunlight

I hear you laugh

Your grin

When it’s alright

The sad half smile

Only your back recognizes

The secrets I struggle to hold

The ones you half show

But I’ll wait

Because I learned

Only yesterday

Friends end fast

So I’ll stand

Right behind you

Until if ever you decide to turn around

Hands in my pockets

Eyes trained on your back

And if ever

Never comes

Then I’ll stand

Right behind you

Hands in my pockets

Eyes always

On your back
