You never say goodbye
In case it means goodbye.
The door closes and you are gone.
To a country where many dangers lie.
I worry, then time moves on.
When you say hello
With that gentle smile
It’s great that you’ve returned,
To see that you still dress with style
And are generous with all you’ve learned.
The day may come when you
No need for the silent farewell.
Hopefully there will be nothing
Left to fear and then all things
May turn out well.
