The full moon Hung dejected in the sky, it's glistning brilliance creating a black and cream world,

Her emotions had vanished, all she could do was stare at his face, empty hearted

She was like Alice trapped in a rabbit hole eternally in Wonderland

But wonder was far from the land her soul had inhabited,

*

She wanted to say it, the very word, goodbye,

But nothing, not even a croak escaped her parched lips,

Their faces were streaked with reflecting tears,

Their hands shaking with the overcoming of grief

But no one could bring themselves to say it,

To utter the word

Goodbye.

*

Reality was not yet leaking in,

The very word, goodbye, could make their very world come to a close,

All the memories would fade into nothing, just a figment, hidden in the mind,

All they had known and loved, could change, with just one effortless word ,

Goodbye

*

The next few minutes pass with a flurry of rushed hugs and kisses

Promises flutter with the night breeze, against their warm bodies,

She turns, with one last look at her beloved.

And walks away, with part of her lost to the world of emotion.

*

When she reaches the car, she hears it,

The word she couldn't bring herself to vocalize

His bravery overcomes his fear, the word is emitted

Goodbye, travels in waves, to her sunken ear,

It was finally said, soon to be burried in the past.

Now she could only wait, for the emerging future.
