In the Good-bye

In the Good-bye

A Poem by

I knew you when you left.

We met, and were unknown
to each other; strangers
that passed through
each other's minds for only moments.

We said "Hello", and
introduced ourselves, but still
we were strangers. Still
we were unknown.

Through the years, we met
again and again, saying
"Hello" and "How are you?",
all the while getting to know
each other.

And yet, we were still
unknown to each other, for
still we had our separate selves.

It was not until you left
that I knew you. It was
not until you were gone
that I recognized you.

Only in the goodbye
were we familiar to each other.

This is really sad to me, especially the last two lines. I really enjoyed this piece and it makes me think about his certain person that I like. Very inspiring.
