once

once

I remember
the two of us lying
under dogwood trees,
pink blossoms falling like snow
onto what I thought was love.

The sun was in my eyes
that day, and every day after.

There is no need
to look back now,
I have no desire to wallow
in tears or pink snow.

I will only say goodbye to you
once.

Wordsmithing is my passion. I eat, sleep, and breathe words and phrases, only to regurgitate them and pray that they are better off than when I first ingested them.
