there’s more feeling
in that short goodbye
than all the other goodbyes in my life
a distilled goodbye, you could call it
when I know in my gut that I’ll see you again
when I know in my heart that you’ll be there
Goodbye is a menial thing
a fold in time
a skip in the disk of our lives together
I’ll see you again
I’ll hear your voice again
we both know
and that’s why there’s no sorrow
in our short goodbye.
