    Goodbye To A Neighbor

    My across the street neighbor moved away today. Although I didn't talk to them very often because they're in their 60s, today the lady said to be "good luck in life. I know you'll be successful". That just got to me that I would never see them again and it's really sad.

    Tara!

    Goodbyes are bad for me. The emotional impact is bad enough but today I had to wave goodbye to the whole of one side of a National Express Coach because it had blacked out windows and I had no idea where she was sitting.  Of course I shouldn't worry about such public displays...

    Dearest Mom, I love you,

    Mom. We have had a good run together. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else but you for a mother, just know that. Soon I will have to say goodbye. The time is approaching for you to leave this world we know and step into the mystery. I am preparing myself, attempting to gather...

    It's time to say goodbye,

    but I think goodbyes are sad and I'd much rather say hello. Hello to a new adventure.

    Bye Bye Best Friend...

    I am used to being an outcast and a loner wherever I go. I don't mind it, though, because I've come to embrace my wierdness. Before I came to my international boarding school, I felt like I would never amount to anything because everyone (including my teachers) in my old school...

    There are few times when I actually cry in

    I'm not good with good-byes of the heart-breaking sort, so I try not to say anything if I'm ever in such a situation.

    Goodbye

    When you walked out the door, you walked out of my life too. You closed the door on me forever, all because you didn’t believe in us. I questioned why you left & wondered if it was because you believed I never loved you enough or was it simply because you fell out of love...
