She Hates Goodbyes

By Deb Kosmer

She hates goodbyes
She has never been good at goodbyes
She wants to gather up everyone she?s ever loved
And hang on to them
Letting go is so hard
Out of sight is so hard
Good byes are so hard
Her heart aches
Even when
It's not forever
She just wants to keep them close
All the people who matter
That she doesn't want to ever
Say goodbye to again
