Day 7: A Valediction

The prompt for today was to write a valediction. I decided to write about saying goodbye rather than writing a poem to say goodbye.

Seeya later

The living think
that the dying don't know
that they're dying
the words won't come out
squeeze a withered, liver-spotted hand
say, "See you later"
instead of "Goodbye, I loved you
with all my heart
and you're going
kill me too
a little."
