Why is it so painful

                        to say good bye, sometimes?

                        Especially, to someone whom

                        you hold close in your heart?

                        You part and go

                        your own separate ways

                        and on occasion,

                        you find the opportunity

                        to come together again.

                        It is especially difficult,

                        if your relationship with each other

                        is kept at a distance.

                        Your moments together are rare.

                        So, you both treasure them,

                        instead of take them

                        for granted.

                        And, when you depart,

                        you feel mixed emotions.

                        The joys, the highs

                        are experienced

                        from that person

                        making you feel special,

                        just by him or her loving you.

                        But also,

                        the sorrow is felt

                        and the fear

                        no longer can stay subsided.

                        The questions arise:

                        ” Will we ever meet again? “

                        ” Will we be able to share once more

                        what we just experienced? “

                        ” Will God grant us this? “

                        Only time will tell.

                        So, you smile

                        and you cry

                        at the same time.
