Engine Driver

I opened the door and closed another
he ran out and you followed

I never saw you again

if I had, I would have told you

that it was a test
the lesson this time was if you really love someone
you let them go

just to see if you taught them well enough
to come back

I never saw you again

but the door is still open
if the wind closes it
I’m afraid

the test will be over
and the lesson just becomes
my punishment
