Goodbye Smiles

I hope to not see you for a very long time.
I hope that your life works out for you,
And that your loved ones only become closer.
That your career continues to make you happy,
And that you continue to stay afloat.

That there is always a silver lining,
The sun continues to shine,
And you always remember to look up.

I say goodbye and you will find a smile on my face.
A tenderness in my hug.
Hard times have come and may never disperse,
But our strength grows and I see you bloom.

My goodbye has a twinkle in my eye,
Because I have a confidence in your step,
In your being,
In your potential.
I see myself in you and I see something new.
I hold faith.
As I smile when I wave goodbye
Be at peace with my love for you.
