Departures…

“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

departures

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
to yesterday?

Let no words pass between us,
as we stare into a distance of separation,
holding only
soul connections!

In the stillness of memory
we’ll reminisce
the good times.

Unbearable departures
are inevitable,
cluttered with reminders,
noisy departure lounges
of melancholy.

I need the fragrance of this moment to linger
and echo remembrance.
Sweet Nostalgia
is imbued
with sunshine
and impressions
of affection.

Though
some tears
must fall,
“Au revoir”
sounds better
than Goodbye…..
