There are many reasons why someone has to say goodbye. Leaving to follow a new lead in life is the happiest of reasons. Yet, your heart and memory start playing tricks on you and all the loving faces come to haunt those last hours of your staying in familiar grounds. God know it is so hard.
I do not want to say goodbye. Can I take you with me? But I have to, don’t I? Big hug, kisses on the cheeks, some tears in the eyes, and a promise that we will meet soon.
