Some people spend years trying to
say good-bye, leaving behind a trail
of half-finished good-byes, seemingly
unaware or unconcerned about
how those heavy stones will feel when you
carry them in your soul, holding them
in your womb and waiting to give birth
to the loss that you knew was yours all along.
They don’t realize you heard the first good-bye
shortly after they uttered the first hello.
Peace & Love,
