For all the "hellos" and "goodbyes."

Hellos and Goodbyes

by hanchanah97

"Hello."

Was the first thing I heard you said. For days we got to know more of each other, That one word...with your matching chinky smile Never failed to always capture me deep inside.

"Hello."

You said that a lot of times. For you, it may not mean anything but a greeting; But for me, it's way more than that --- It's the reason why butterflies were in my stomach.

"Hello."

Indeed, it is a common word --- A simple word, but when it came from your mouth, It would always take my breath away As my heart would crazily beat for your name.

But then...

"Goodbye."

Was the last thing I heard you said. For days that I thought our journey would never end, That one word...with your matching forced smile Never failed to slowly kill me deep inside.

"Goodbye."

You said that just twice. For you, it may not mean anything but letting go; But for me, it's way more than that --- It's the reason why I heard my heart cracking.

"Goodbye."

Indeed, it is a common word --- A simple word, but when it came from your mouth, It would always stab my heart more than a knife could As tears would rapidly roll down my face.

For all the "hellos," Which meant happiness...

For all the "goodbyes," Which meant sadness...

For everything, Which meant "you..."

Now I'm left with two words to say.

"Hello, goodbye."

This was very well written. Your thoughts on the subject were wise beyond your years. Every hello is the front end of goodbye. You caught that. Great poem!!!!
