Coming and Going

OUR NEXT HELLO

I watch you walk away, all fight and pride.
My fastest run can’t catch you now you’ve gone.
Young love eloped with laughter long ago.
Find them if you dare and ask them why.

I wish I had a place still at your side.
Together we could search the world to find
Those pieces of ourselves we’ve let escape,
The pieces of ourselves we left to die.

I want you to look back at me and know
I wait for you, still hoping you’ll return.
My mind says let you go, my heart is torn.
My silence holds a space for that goodby.

I will not speak aloud those words. I tried.
Let silence hold instead our next hello.
