Goodbyes

Goodbyes

There are many times in your life when you say goodbye to someone and you're not sure if you will see them again but, sometimes, you say goodbye to someone and you know you will never see them again.

That's where I'm headed now. I'm going back to Vancouver and the joy of the many hellos that I will say to people that I haven't seen for over two years will be tempered with the fact that, for one person, I will be saying hello again and also goodbye. And I know it will be for the last time.

Because he is ill. Because he is in pain. Because life is too much to bear. Because it's time.

I am lucky to get this chance. Even though there has never been a harsh word between us and there is nothing in our friendship that needs to be repaired I am lucky that I'm able to make the trip back.

To say goodbye. And to say thank you, for everything. For being you.
