    She's the school secretary.

    She's in her 50's, but age is just a number because she is my best friend. I stand and talk to her everyday about everything. She knows my life like a book & it kills me that she will be leaving at the end of this year! I love her so much & I'm so heartbroken that I will have to...

    Tomorrow

    I'm going back home.   I'm not going to say goodbye to anyone except probably my roommate.   I like it better that way.  For me to just fade out into obscurity. I don't want anyone to miss me.

    I say goodnight because goodbye means forever. </3

    The most painful goodbyes are the ones

    that are never said and never explained.

    I keep rereading the messages I wrote to a

    close friend and I can't stop rereading it. I do miss him very much but I want to stop but then again I don't want too. I reread the message over and over again and it helps me a lot knowing why I did what I had to do.

    Last night I watched my bro pack his bags and do his final kit checks.  He goes away all the time but this is different, he's going to war again and the risk of him not coming back is very real. There aren't many times that I will break tradition and actually hug...

    Hiding My Emotions

    Saying goodbye is never easy and it is not something that you can get used to - no matter how often you say it. My father lives in another country and I only see him 5-6 times a year for about 6-7 days. Therefor we often say "goodbye" to each other. Over the years I have become...

    With this being the last day of the school year,

    I've said goodbye far too much. I spent a class period talking to Mr. Way, my English teacher. His face lit up when I asked if he had any plans over break, and he talked excitedly about how he usually caught, tagged, and released sharks over vacations. I might have him the...

    It Was Supposed to Be " See You Later "...

    I remember you... I remember everything. Every word, every sigh, even our last kiss... The one that was supposed to say "See You Later" instead of goodbye. Remember me, for some part of me will always rule a distant kingdom with you.

    I've Never Been Good At Goodbyes.

    Goodbye is just so final. To me, goodbye is like saying "I'll never see you again, (or for a very long time) but I hope we're parting on good terms". A death, a departure, the end of a phone call or message, ahhh, It's just so hard. A friend you have to say goodbye to, because...

    I don't like saying goodbye.

    Even if it you're going to see that person the next day, the word 'goodbye' just seems to final, like you're putting an end to it forever.

    Goodbyes ;(

    I never like saying goodbye to people, especially when I want to see them again. Goodbyes seem like that's going to be it forever...that I'm never going to see or hear from them again.. I only use goodbyes on people who I don't want to see again.
