Before Goodbye

In time, we will have to say goodbye. You’ll need to learn to love with distance between us and silence will be my response to your every “I love you”.

No one lives forever and only one person gets to be the one to say goodbye. If that person is me, then I will dedicate all my achievements as love letters to you but if that person is you, then when I’m gone, let me leave with the bad memories. Hold on to my smile, hold on to the parts of me that make you want to go on.

I will do my best to whisper through the silence, to use the wind to tell you that even without a body I still house love for you; without hands I can still hold you close to my spirit and without you, I’m nothing but a soul waiting to be complete.
