the best teacher ever

we both cried.
we won't breath in the same stale
classroom air,
we won't fill the same room with 
trills and vibrato.
the best teacher ever is leaving us
he'll be in a different room breathing
the same air as a different set of students.
we loved each other.
sometimes love must be at a distance
each breathing their own air and 
playing their own melody
only to criss-cross in a duet sometimes.
not as much, but maybe just enough
to remember the generosity of
every week of every month
of so many years.
I cried and tears squeezed from
his eyes.
the best teacher ever,
I will miss you so.
