While Waiting


While waiting for the Greyhound bus, my dad and I, the two of us, recounted pleasant moments passed: the memories we had amassed, experienced, and oft discussed.

Our dialog continued thus— light-hearted and extraneous— until we saw the bus at last while waiting.

We said goodbye without much fuss; I stepped into the ominous, uncharted future from the past not knowing how my die was cast and feeling I grew up too fast while waiting.
