thank you

I do this thing when I’m saying goodbye

to somewhere or someone

most times I don’t look for it

it finds me

and all the good memories

the bad memories

and everything in between

come trickling back in

bashfully slow

but then all at once

like little flashes of light

surrounding me

engulfing me in white

becoming this single warm glow

and then suddenly

the memories aren’t just pictures or stories anymore

they’re just this feeling

this wave of overwhelming emotion

that puddles my eyesight

and I can’t help but to say

thank you
