Into the Background

This poem is entitled 'Into the Background'. It is based on personal experiences that I have put into this beautiful form of English.

Dedicated to the best parents on earth, I love you lots. Xx

The distant smile,

Over the room.

The silent eye,

Connects with mine.

Three words escape your lips,

Into the background.

The final whistle,

The blow of steam.

You start to move and,

I can't catch up.

Faster and faster

Into the background.

Waving goodbye,

From the silver car.

You look sad,

I'm looking 'happy'.

I turn away,

Into the background.

A massive hug,

Tears start to flow.

Big hazel eyes,

Look into your deep blue.

Hand in hand, we walk;

Into the background.
