is this goodbye?

27 January 2006

It is never easy to say goodbye
Especially when the end is not really an end.
Like when someone walking beside you
Disappears in the infinity of a split second.
Or when the end looks not at all like an end
But a beginning masquerading as one.

It is never easy to say goodbye
When the end is long in coming
And at the same time abrupt,
Taking you along for a ride and leaving
While you pause to catch your breath.

These ends – they come masked in deception
And when you are most sure they’re not yet come,
They spring their trap, and then
You find it hard to say goodye

And harder even to move on.
