Reasons for goodbye
For my father
As time passes by,
apparently there is understanding;
apparently there is growth;
apparently there is a reason why.
Too often we have to hear the response,
“Time heals everything”,
and experience the non-existent elation
that those vacuous words bring.
It doesn’t get any easier;
the days roll across the sky
but still no reasons appear…
reasons for goodbye.

The age-old saying “time heals all wounds” makes me feel rather ill, it’s a terrible lie 🙂 And it’s OK that it doesn’t feel better. Why should it, when you lose a loved one?
