Painfully stuck in airport for hours wait, 

Sitting here staring the clock ticks slowly. 

Here with you life’s perfect –it doesn’t grate. 

My arm falls asleep, your heavy head rolls, 

Further onto my chest; I need to get up. 

Legs start to tingle, I’ve sat too long so —

I gently moving your head; my ‘buttercup,’ 

You hate when I call you that but you make me smile. 

Happiness, tranquility; I’m drugged. 

Departure board reads, plane is still awhile. 

Walking for coffee, some lunch, magazines. 

You’re awake when I return, you beguile;

Your grin makes you quiver and I preen. 

Unaware we stare, our stare held timeless.

You appreciate me (and food); your eyes gleam. 

We’re both stuck here all night, it’s liveable, 

We both forge a tighter bond insurmountable. 

Painfully stuck in airport for hours wait. 

Here with you, life’s perfect — it doesn’t grate.

    How sweet! I am imagining that she is sitting at the airport with her child or her beloved. Lovely poem, Mandi!

      Thank you, I think it’s her guy. But I like that it could be her child as well 🙂 Thanks for your comment PJ 💕🙏🏻

    any journey always made sweeter or memorable because of the person we travel with, this was sweet and endearing.

      Thank you for reading. I think being with the right people help a lot. You can imagine sometime later saying, “Remember when we were stuck at the airport over night . . .” And that being both annoying but also a memory shared 🙂
