Goodbye

Goodbye
is more
than a farewell.
Goodbye
is I’m sorry
whispered
too late,
I love you
left unsaid.
A smile
never exchanged,
A thank you
distracted
by a text.
Goodbye
is the tight hug,
from behind,
you were
too afraid
to give.
Goodbye
is the letter
you never
got
to send.
Goodbye
is your daughters
wedding
you decided
not to attend.
Goodbye
is your last words
before your mothers
final breath.
You see,
goodbye
is so much more
than a farewell.
Goodbye
is the
bittersweet endings
pullingĀ on
your heartstrings.
Goodbye
holds
all the words
you never said
and
all the words
you wish had.
And sometimes
that goodbye
is the last chance
you’ll ever get.

Goodbye
