So Long

by Kelli J Gavin


I will not say goodbye to you.
I won’t do it.
I will say so long.
In hopes of seeing you again.
I will not say goodbye to you.
Good bye always seems so final.
And saying goodbye to you isn’t possible.
I will always want you.
I will always need you.
So long.
I will see you soon.
I will see you again.
Because I will not say goodbye to you.
