Goodbyes and Other Words (half marathon #9)

I’ve never liked goodbyes.

They are not a forever sentence

Nor are they a guarantee of a final meeting,

But they do hold those possibilities.

The entire word is about possibilities.

We say goodbye because

Life is short

Life is unpredictable

Life can eliminate things

Without warning.

We say goodbye because

We have learned to expect

Every possibility.

But the last thing that we should say

To one another

Should not be


We need to tell people

How we feel about them.

We need to use our words

To express



And strength.

Word are our universal power,

And like goodbyes,

They possess endless possibility.
