The moment I said goodbye

I remember the first day we met.

It was clear and sunny, the afternoon breeze rustling the leaves of the tree which you sat under.

A book in hand, and pen in the other. The studious kind, I supposed.

You flashed a grin and welcomed me by your side.

And in that moment, the icy walls of my soul melted.

It was that moment, when I said hello.

~~~

I remember our last days.

It was clear and sunny, warm against the skin.

We were back under that same tree from years ago.

The same book was in your hand. A different pen however, gifted by myself.

You flashed a grin and turned to walk away.

And in that moment, my soul shattered.

It was that moment, when I said goodbye.
