it’s hard to say goodbye

3 07 2009

without recalling whatever you’ve withheld from someone.

without regretting hasty words that you said behind their back.

without wishing you would have pursued more time with them.

without wondering whether or not they feel loved by you.

without worrying that you haven’t been who you could have been.

without thinking of yourself, mostly, as they grab the last suitcase and go on their way.
