The Instant of Our Parting

The Instant of Our Parting

BY: Alice Walker

I said: I cannot tell you
how much I do not believe -
in you
the instant we part.

I said: I lived in limbo
that whole summer
would survive your flight
home. 

I said: I am better now
that the instant we part
the instant of our parting  
is with me always.
