++dear john (a throwback)

Time to finally come home.
Time to spend with his son.
Time to say goodbye.
The problem with time,
l've learned,
whether it's those first two weeks
l got to spend with you
or those final two months
l got to spend with him,
eventually time always runs out.
l have no idea where you are
out there in the world, John.
But l understand that l lost the right
to know these things long ago.
No matter how many years go by,
l know one thing
to be as true as it ever was.
l'll see you soon, then.
