About a year ago 'goodbye'
was not my favorite word,
but now it's why I say 'hello,'
I know that sounds absurd.
The moments when we bid farewell
are times I can't replace,
for first we smile, then say 'goodbye,'
then I'm graced by your embrace.
And in that moment I find faith
and the answers to my prayer,
as all I ever dream about
comes true as I hold you there.
And so once more we say 'so long,'
embrace like true best friends,
as secretly I think of us
and hope this never ends.
Perhaps it's not what friends should do,
I don't care, not one bit,
because if heaven could exist
I assure you this is it.
