The Goodbye Day

There are 24 hours

in every day

so they are the same

or so they say.


But I respectfully disagree –

some days leave a mark

and we remember them with

the beats of our heart.


There are hello days

and days filled with good cheer.

There are also blue days

and days laden with fear.


December 2nd is marked

for me now anyway.

It is now known

as the Goodbye Day.


I forget a lot of things but I recall

every detail through and through

that occurred on this day

when I said goodbye to you.


Going in those 24 hours

may look the same way

but how each hour stacks up

may leave a mark on that day.
