HELLO GOODBYE

Of all the things we do in life,
I think I have discovered.
The thing we do the worst,
We do to one another.

Hello is rather easy.
We say it when we meet.
We say it on the telephone.
We say it on the street.

Goodbye is something different.
Endings are not easy.
Filled with much uncertainty,
They leave us feeling queasy.

Athletes wait far too long.
Politicians even longer.
The urge to leave is there,
But the urge to stay is stronger.
