“The story of life is quicker than the wink of an eye, the story of love is hello and goodbye…until we meet again”
― Jimi Hendrix
Can we drag out this goodbye
just a little longer,
stretch it as far as it will go
across the great expanse of time
and turn back the clocks
Let no words pass between us,
as we stare into a distance of separation,
In the stillness of memory
the good times.
cluttered with reminders,
noisy departure lounges
I need the fragrance of this moment to linger
and echo remembrance.
