Goodbyes are always difficult.
Even after the longest of hours waiting it out, it becomes tough to write a goodbye note.
Especially when one wants to bid adieu to their second skin.
Goodbye dear friend; thank you for all the smiles and care.
For all the sniffles and tear(s).
It made me realize that you are more than just a name, a mere face.
Perhaps I would never had let you go till reality slapped me hard across my cheek.
But all good things come an end, and I got to accept it soon enough.
It doesn’t matter what the world thinks of me; but your image should remain untainted.
Even when it was just a misunderstanding.
Even when it was just me.
I have wronged a large number of people and forgiveness I can’t ask for.
I didn’t realize love comes with such a heavy price.
I thought I could withstand all the test of times,
But I failed and laid down my guard for I had committed a heinous crime.
I didn’t try to steal or estrange you; though I chose to see you like I wanted to.
It’s true love is beautiful and forgiving and just.
But loving can hurt sometimes; it can be selfish and then we should let go of it, we must.
So, until then, when we meet in some other world;
Maybe I would be a better person- good, kind and whorled.
With virtues that wouldn’t let you down.
