The Goodbye gives way to the Hello
But Oh, how I Hate the Goodbye
It creeps in undercover of the night
In the darkest shadows…
bringing, death, regrets, sorrow, sadness, loss
Spewing toxins, like a volcano
Misting my eyes with hot ash
That burns right through to my heart

After weeks, months… a year
I can see better and brighter
Shining in the new stronger version of myself
Embracing the growth from all of the
Goodbyes…
that were forced upon my life
Opening my eyes to… the window of truth
That in the wake of the Goodbyes…
All of the new shiny doors that shout “Hello”…
Swing open!
