... watched as he faded from view ...

Image (c) 2005, Karla Dorman

... I had to let him go.  He said it
was time to find
himself.  He had to find his way.
And so, with a
sadness in my heart, I released
his hand ... and
watched as he faded from view
into the dusk,
until my straining eyes could see
him no more.

(c) 2007, Karla Dorman (12/11)
