The Rendezvous.

We met. 
Smiled at each other.
Inquired about each other’s well-being. 
I said, “I’m good,” she had been too.

I shouldn’t have left her. She shouldn’t have let me go.
I had dreams to fulfill. She had her obligations.
Our smile was fake, the answers too.
I knew. She knew too.

My mother.
