Goodbye is never easily said. That is of course if you are not saying it to a customer of any kind.
It is hard to leave. Hard to leave a place you love so much, you feel home at. It hurts. It hurts to say goodbye to people you love, you grew so close to.
Sometimes I wonder if you get used to it. If you get used to leaving a place, moving, saying goodbye to the people who are close to you. I doubt it…
I feel, that in a way you always leave a tiny part of yourself behind. Back with the place you loved so much and back with the people you cared about.
But then you also take a little bit with you. That little piece of that place and that little bit of those people. In your heart, treasured forever.
So next time, when I have to say goodbye, I will try to remember, that deep in my heart the place and the people will leave with me and that I will always have a little place in their heart and in their world.
And it will not be a goodbye anymore. It will be a ‘until I see you again’.
