A Goodbye Poem

Please hold on for one more moment
I am growing my goodbye
If you listen closely

Perhaps you will hear it
Reaching towards the sky
to the melody
o
f my heartbeat and the silence
that replaces words too difficult
To say.
And I water it
Every two to three days
Sometimes I forget because
There are so many other things
I have to do
And so many goodbyes to grow
But please hold on for just
one more moment
and wait for it
to bloom.
