Soon I shall be leaving
this I know without a doubt.
It’s simply a matter of counting the years
that reveals the certain ending of this span.
How precious is each moment when the final chapter appears on the seen horizon!
How simple everything becomes when the last line of the story approaches with indisputable certainty!
And so I smile and hug and laugh and contemplate…
all this… all this…
truly it is a remarkable dream,
truly it is a poignant joy,
is actually hello, until we meet again.
“Ce n’est qu’un au revoir.”
