Sailor And His Love

She hates the airport as much
As I hate my migraines.
We said our goodbyes
In tears and laughter.

Before I sailed to the Caribbean
We face timed each other
She seems strong and happy
Wishing me all the happiness.

Yesterday, she messages me
‘Our 5th anniversary will be in three months,
Come home soon.’
I couldn’t reply to her;
I’ve just extended my contract.
I missed our big day.

“Am I a widow or your wife?
I am tired of being alone.
I need you by my side
My bed is cold and our flowers are dying too
I am getting old; I want a baby.”
She posted on my timeline.

Today, I have a car; a villa
Enough food for a decade,
and land that produces fruits and wine.
But I am lonely and cold.
I left when she needed me most,
So does she, when I needed her most.
