Border Crossing

She slipped across the border last night,
No tickets booked, just a last minute flight,
Just a last minute thing at the end of the day,
Not even time for a farewell to say,
No time to fill bags with personal things,
Or time to choose what cloths to bring,
No prayers said to keep her from harm,
Or crossing herself or even lucky charm,
She slipped across the border last night,
I hope she found her way all right.
