A Goodbye

A goodbye
in any language is bitter
when it is said out loud

Thoughts along the way
dim as one pushes another
away from ones heart

A goodbye
is a shallow rejection
an end to ones future

Thoughts along the way
are diminished as black
dust covers a bright light

A goodbye
the final door that closes on
something that shall never be

- Rhoda Galgiani
