To say goodbyes

To say goodbyes

I learned to say goodbyes
quick and short
with a cheery countenance,
Refusing to dwell in
the heartbreaks
each farewell always bring.

I learned to hope, to dream
bright futures coming true,
Bracing a little, watchful
love will conquer much.

I learned to sleep alone
warm and safe
my imagination on,
Within the crook of your arms
the promise of
greeting another dawn.
