Leaving

I left you there one day in your small apartment
as I went about my business, my own wants, own needs
in another far-away place where you were not.
We spoke briefly by phone about this or that once in awhile
about when we would meet again
to share a few personal moments together
you and I, father and son
just the two of us.
To talk about how you used to fish
and why you can't now
and about the assortment of medications
in amber vials on top of the dresser.
About other things that meant so much to you
but meant so little to me.
Our moment for sharing vanished with you
as you walked into the night
without me.
