In Voice: Tenderest Farewell



 
 “I’ll never leave you.”
 “You’ll have to.”
 “I won’t let it win!”
 “We both know it will.”
 “They could be wrong?”
 “They aren’t.”
 “How can you be so calm?”
 “I’m ready to go. I’ve made my peace. Now you must, too.”
 “Never!”
 “You’ll have to, my love, because I want you to leave me now, and don’t look back.”
 “No, it can’t be now, not yet!”
 “Soon.”
 “Oh, no!”
 “Very soon.”
 “But…”
 “But nothing. I’m ready, or I will be, after…”
 “After what? Anything, anything at all.”
 “After you kiss me.”
 “If my lips kiss you it’ll be like saying goodbye.”
 “Exactly, my sweet darling.”
 “But…”
 “Just do it, my love. Close your eyes, kiss me, then turn and go. Believe me when I say that you’ve the harder task.”
 “I don’t know what to say?”
 “Don’t say anything, just kiss me. “Quickly my love whilst I still can. This must be our tender farewell. We’ll say no more now. Just go and remember me as I was.”
 —-

 “See you in a heartbeat. And yes, if you heard me, I lied, I had to say goodbye.”

      1. Oh but that’s more mean than saying goodbye Richard…Not knowing what to expect is far more troubling and hurting than knowing the end… I hate to say goodbye coz I prefer every romantic relationship I had would end in friendship. πŸ™‚
