Poem: Inertia

NOT IK, and although the speaker is I, it's not me of the here and now....could have been me once upon a time, though....

I remember how cold was the air
the day I left you standing there;
the wind was playing with your hair,
your breathing made a cloud.

You looked at me as if you knew
I would not return and nor would you –
I looked deeply in your eyes of blue
I tightened up my scarf.

“I’ll call you soon,” I said and smiled,
You nodded, eyes both sad and mild,
I heard the crying of a child,
when you sighed and turned away.

I meant to call, I meant to write,
When I heard you wed, my throat grew tight,
But I let you slip out of my sight –
Inertia wins again.

Beautifully written!!! It's sad but it's really beautiful! The feelings you poured in it flew out of the simple poem... really touching, leaving you the feeling of wanting to know more about it!
