When I Said Goodbye

NaPoWriMo Day#6: Write a Valediction 

 

When I said goodbye to you

I didn’t realize that I would have to

Say goodbye to a lot of other

Things as well.

 

I realized that I had to let go

Of smiling for no reason,

Humming a song when I walk,

Making friends easily

And trusting instinctively.

 

When I said goodbye to you

I also said goodbye to

Senseless laughter and giddy smiles,

Glowing beneath the warm sun

And dancing in the rain.

 

When you were gone,

So was sharing chocolates,

Talking for endless hours,

Enjoying the breeze and the sunset

And lying on the grass.

 

When I said goodbye to you,

I never realized

That I would have to say goodbye

To a part of me too.
