Goodbye

My mother told me

to always say goodbye.

Not just to be polite

but because it meant something.

 

You never know

when you’ll see someone again.

And if you never do,

if you said goodbye you’ve parted somewhat well.

 

If your last words

to someone

are goodbye

it’s better than cruel words.

 

Even if you’ve finished

cruel words with a goodbye

at least you acknowledged

that they’re there

and said goodbye.

 

And if they die

you’ll have

one less thing

to feel guilty for.

 

Always

say

goodbye.

Because you never know.

Goodbye,

Ivy
