Just Saying Hello - poem

Updated on April 20, 2013
Source


sometimes

just a quick hello

in a stolen moment of sincerity

means all the world to a lonely heart

looking for a glimmer of hope

that someday there will be more

between the hello

and the inevitable goodbye

      ocfireflies... hello! sorry about the delayed response. I have not been on HP much.... words from a friend, even a few, do seem to work wonders to combat lonely feelings..... wishing you well.

      DanaTeresa,

      Not being one who cares much for talking on the phone, I do know how

      wonderful a friendly hello can mean on those days when I am feeling particularly alone.

      Thank You,

      Kim

      ImKarn23 - H E L L O to my soul sista! You always get just what I am saying/feeling. It is a beautiful thing to be understood.... The honor is mine. You have enriched my life in too many ways to count....

      "Sometimes the hello ain't worth the goodbye - ya know?" Boy do I know it! A lesson I think I am still learning.

      Luv ya! xx

      Docmo - yes. if you can say a paragraph with a word, that is good communication. Good relationship? I suppose that would depend on what is said.... a hello from you is always welcome.

      wayne barrett - nowadays you don't even need to use your voice! you can FB message, ot text. Though keep in mind "What are you wearing?" is much less effective when tyoed. Not that I wold know anything about that... talk to Suzie :)

      and nowadays you don't even have to get tangled in the cord to have descent conversation...

      If you answer and you here a low husky voice whisper, "What are you wearing?" Oh, I would never do something like that...blame Billy : )
