For my travelling maniac

Did you know that every time you go away, I come with you?

I nestle on your eyelashes and sing them lullabies.
I tickle the corner of your lips into a smile when
A breath-taking sunset breaks in through
The dusty window panes of your bus,
Leaving everything a deep shade of orange in its wake.
When the full moon rises and lights up the inky blue evening sky,
I make you look out the train window and marvel
At the odd silver the moonlight coats the world with.

I am the salty breath of the sea that makes you
Throw your arms wide open and believe in God.

And when you come back and tell me of your adventures,
I already know them by heart.
Because every time you go away, I come with you.
