Goodbye

“Hello”

A word known by all

At such a young age we have learned to say hello

But the difference between you and I

Is I have been forced to learn to say goodbye

From the boxes piled high to the tears that never dry

Packing all the memories made

In just one day

Years and Years of memories made

Gone in just one day

Everything I know gone in a day

The empty wall and empty halls

No longer say “hello”

There must be a reason

For this stupid sacrifice

Cause why would the country purposely make a child

Always say “Goodbye”
