First Meeting

(From the Day 13 November Poem A Day prompt, to write a “memory” poem.)

I will never forget that day,
walking toward the unknown. Never before
did we meet face to face.
A world away he seemed.
To fly there, alone,
they called me crazy,
naïve.
My nerves on edge,
butterflies…
Scared of what I’d find

scared of how I’d be found

Questioning if I was what he hoped,
Was I good enough?
Early,
The flight landed.
My anxiety heightened
as I waited.

Until…

A man strode into the airport,
urgent steps, on a mission.
He scanned the flight board,
turned toward me.
My heart raced.
We embraced.
As his lips touched mine I knew,
My heart was his
and my life forever changed.
