“Goodbye” is just a word. It is not painful because that person might say it today, and say “hello” the next day. What is hard and painful? It is when a person so dear to you, don’t say anything, but you feel that he is slowly drifting away… like there’s no more “hello”… and “goodbye” isn’t temporary but a permanent remark.
What are your thoughts about goodbyes? Have you had the same experience as mine?
