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,
My nerves on edge,
Scared of what I’d find

scared of how I’d be found

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


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.
