I wonder if you’ve noticed
That I haven’t hugged you since the last time
I said goodbye and meant the first part of that

random happenings, thoughts

goodbyes after hellos

I wish I knew how to make it last longer;

They say moments are fleeting but

I don’t think they are,

people are just fleeing

(away from whatever it is that preoccupied their momentary minds then,

away from whenever they felt something that they will never feel again,)

away from something I probably held on way too hard and way too long to,

because I wasn’t able

to be like you.
