Terrible Goodbyes

Since the beginning of us
We’ve been terrible at goodbyes
When it’s nearly time to go
You can see it in our eyes
There’s the sadness of parting
Knowing you will miss the other
Trying to drag yourself away, then
You need a moment to recover
There’s a reason we take our time
Wave at each other down the street
Say goodbye a hundred ways
Allow our pattern to repeat
Love, that’s what it means
Let’s always be bad at goodbyes
We can let this failing continue
It’s not sadness but love in my eyes
