Plan Failed

Plan Failed

A Poem by Faith Anderson

It seemed steady.
Planted.
Like a thick oak rooted in Earth.
Like an anchor in concrete.
Like a mother and child.
But we drifted so slowly.
I failed 
to notice.
like a seed in the wind
you were gone.
like a bird lost at sea
you were gone.
like a dead heartbeat
you were gone.
and i remained.
solid in my surroundings
while the wind wind carried you 
like a seed
to a distant earth
where you could be planted
this wasn't supposed to happen.

For some reason, the site won't let me make stanzas, sorry about that. :/
