The Little Things

Isn’t ‘goodbye’ the most
Hurtful thing to say?
‘Good bye’ with a wave
Is like handing yourself
To the unknown,
With gratefulness, but also with uncertainty.

Saying ‘good bye’ without a wave of hand
Is like saying that
There’s still a chance
We meet again tomorrow.
Just you wait.
But can you wait forever?

Saying ‘good bye’ by means of a look
Is as if one is supposed to know
What if it isn’t the end?
Does one chose to end it
Just because we assumed,
We thought we understood?

Saying ‘good bye’ without a word,
Nor a look, nor a wave of hand
Not a single tone, zilch.
That hurts the most.
Because in the end
You chose to leave.
