I watch the car pull away,
focusing my eyes on the shiny blue paint for as long as the road will allow.
A sense of longing overwhelms me.
What's out there for him?
What's there that's not here?
He leaves to seek adventure,
to take care of us from a distance,
to love us from afar,
to do what he knows is right.
I just want him safe, here with me.
Someone else can save the day.
But I know why he leaves.
So, I'll love him from a distance.
Waiting for him to come home
and tell me of his adventures.
Of the people he saved,
and the ones he couldn't.
for that car to come back.
