In every TV show
And in every movie
Got to say goodbye.
Was able to bury their ghosts.
Even if it was through a snowglobe.
Shaking the reality into a dream
Allowing their pent up fears to be expelled
Through a released breath.
But I …
Never got to shake up my world.
(My world was shaken.)
I never got to turn understanding on its head.
(“This can’t be real, can it?”)
Never was able to say,
“Hey. You? I love you.”
… I never got to say goodbye.
