Good-bye Again

People so seldom say I love you. And then it's either too late or love goes. So when I tell you I love you, it doesn't mean that I know you'll never go, only that I wish that you didn't have to.

Saying good-bye to someone when there is a chance there you may not see them again in this life is one of the hardest things you'll ever have to do especially when it's a loved one. My mom has not been with me much of the day today. She has a hard time saying good-bye. I wish we could talk about what is between us now, but when I tell her good-bye tomorrow to fly back to California and that I love her what I'm really saying is that I wish life was such that I didn't have to say it (good-bye that is).

Hi Lisa-Marie,

I'm a periodic visitor to your blog (found you by googling flaneuse 'cause it was such a fascinating term) and wanted to say that I appreciate your honest sharing of what has to be a very difficult situation with your mom. You have a way with writing that allows for the expression of what is tender and true.

Thank you.
