Don't look back

I never look back
After we've kissed goodbye.

You think it's because
I'm quick to move on to other things 
My gait along the sidewalk strong, determined.

If you only knew.

I treasure believing you want to look at me for as long as possible.

I am certain I feel your eyes on the back of my neck
As I walk away.

I don't turn around because I couldn't bear to be disappointed.

To twist and find instead your back to me 
Your strong, determined gait far along the sidewalk
And realize that so quickly 
You've moved on to other things.

All my love.
