Evolving Emotions: Goodbye

So quickly it began

With nervous laughter

Sweaty palms

Hearts racing wildly

The unknown ahead

 

So slowly it passed

Difficult days

Difficult nights

Tears and sweat and pain

Awaiting the day

 

Of the end

The last day of the start

Of more difficult days

Difficult nights ahead

But some good ones too

 

Much bitter sweetness lingers

In every goodbye

With a wave

Say goodbye to

All of the lessons learned

People met

 

And things yet to become

 

We must cherish all endings

However bitter

Or deliciously sweet

For they are final, of course

And now,

Onto something new
