a week of haunting dreams, for it's of fear and regret.
by day, a million 'I love you' spoken.
everything is packed, and put away.
In a few hours, I take flight to chicago.
which will then begin my 5 month absence.
my nerves are shot, my heartaches unbearable, my courage weary.
I don't know what the future holds,
but I do know that I must be my strongest.
