Hello, goodbye how do I say?

The ending words when someone goes away,

I want them to leave to for fill a dream,

But inside I feel like I sob and scream.

Secretly I want them near,

In my arms to protect my fear.


What do I say when they choose to leave,

I look like I’m happy but I secretly grieve,

My heart breaks and my minds a mess,

But isn’t this the ultimate test?


I know I’ll be waiting with arms open wide,

‘being myself’ while insecurities hide.


So goodbye for now I’ll see you at one stage,

Once the leaves turn brown and the seasons change,

I’ll be waiting for you with so much love,

Looking for your wings to glide up above.
