Goodbye is but a word
That we say to those who advance
Beyond the wide and shallow ford
Called time and distance.
Time that spans sunrise and sunset,
Warm and cold, birth and loss,
Is but a word we call that concept
That we all cross.
And distance, that which is but a name
For the valleys, mountains, rivers, and oceans
To be traversed all the same
Who pass the human motions,
Constricted by the limits of the body,
Freed by the memory of the mind,
Strengthened by the heart’s bravery,
Let us look to the future kind.
For the times we have spent
For the distances we shall travel
Cheers to us who have come and went
Here’s to the day we’ll again revel!

– To my friend, Melissa. Bon voyage!
