We are what we were
then when we had been in love.
How we say ‘God be with thee,’ with every good bye
though, how often do you conjure up God with your farewells?
Is there a statute of limitations for a good bye?
Isn’t every good bye taken back at the next hello?
Still, good bye defines us when it’s our last line
underlining the two words that meant to rhyme
but came up just shy.
