#8 Poem-A-Day Challenge: In The Loveliest Of Times

In the loveliest of times
we were becoming friends

expressing.
revealing. evolving.

enchanted

I knew parting was
close at hand

inevitable

In the loveliest of times
long conversations felt like you were
next door or closer
like whispers in the night

You didn’t believe our goodbye
was possible. But I knew. I
began to prepare since hello.

Goodbye wrapped in
Change
Choices
Challenges

How did we meet? I can’t
remember really
How will we say goodbye?
I don’t know really

In the loveliest of times we
were always saying
goodbye
