Miranda’s Take on Leaving the Keiters

‘Goodbye’ is not ‘Goodbye’

The day we spend together was fun
When our bright faces outshone the sun
When we had to leave, no tears were shed
No cheeks all wet, no eyes all red

Does this mean we do not care for one another?
About our sister? About our brother?
Does this mean all we did was a waste?
Does this mean we’ll part ways and make haste?

No, it means that we care enough to pray
And I’ll see your face before me every day
No, it means that the sooner we leave
The sooner we’ll play again some eve

I’ll miss you, you know, and remember a lot
I’ll remember crystal clear, with not one blot
And besides, we all know from the year you towed
‘Goodbye’ is not goodbye, just ‘see you down the road’.

    That pretty much sums it up. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

    Love it!  But for the record, I cried after you left.
