I guess this is goodbye

No goodbye,

Just say “See you soon”

There’s no finality,

It’s a sign of hope,

For tomorrow,

But is there hope?

Will I see you tomorrow?

Or ever?

I can’t get over the thought,

That every time I wave,

Hug you,

Kiss you goodbye,

It may be the last time,

But I take courage in my words,

At least I didn’t leave you with hope,

Hope that I’ll be back,

Back so that you can stare at my back,

One last time,

As you await my return,

Which isn’t guaranteed,

Not by me,

Or any supernatural being,

I want you to know,

Every time I say goodbye,

It may be my last.

Goodbyes are the hardest to say,

Not because it hurts,

Or because you’re saddened,

Simply because of your fears,

Fears that you’ll move on,

Forget about your past,

A past that built you,

A past with people,

People you love,

People you loathe,

People you know nothing about,

And still judged,

Fear the same might happen to you,

The fear of being forgotten,

Becoming insignificant,

To someone you once treasured,

The fear of the unknown,

So strong is the mind,

But equally fickle,

You can choose to grow,

From your past,

And embrace your future,

Or forever be pegged back,

By what was,

Not what could have been.

So this is goodbye,

I’m not leaving you behind,

I’m just moving forward,

Going into the unknown,

I’m frightened,

Well beyond my skin,

But how else is history made?

If not through risks,

Knowing it can be,

As opposed to it would be,

So take my words,

Not as my last words,

But as my last words to you,

Kiss me with finality,

Look into my eyes,

Because what I may see ahead,

May change my outlook of life,

Feel my heartbeat,

It may be the last time it beats for you,

Hold my hand tight,

Because I may lose my grip,

But remember my face,

Remember my smile,

This might not be the last time you see it,

This is goodbye.
