Time to say a ‘good bye’ and still looking each other in the eye
Wanting to read each word written which seems a reflection
Saying it almost and stopping short with nothing but a ‘bye’
Having whiled away the time with a little girls disposition
Just talking and passing inconsequential remarks

Both have been too lonely too long to ask for anything
Conversations that bustled like a highway traffic have gradually muffled
Now resting like a bird being watched in the rural quietness
Waiting for nature to change the season
Silence has chosen to hang in the air, swaddling everything

Making them say a goodbye against all wishes
Hoping there will forever be a next time
Just another meeting which didn’t circle into an event
Just another ‘goodbye’ said with a smile
And a quietness and sudden emptiness… and hope…
