Sweet hello and deadly goodbye…

 Sweet hello and deadly goodbye…

Hello dear Brigitte. I still remember us.

You were my brightness on the a sunny days and

the light of hope in the mist of dark  and wonderful nights.

I left for war and new places, wanted drink and song over kind love.

You were so kind to me and you forgave me for running from you,

but I never forgave myself.

I remember your tears falling and your tears becoming  my scars of regret upon

my heart, the memory of kind beauty crying for wandering man.

You taught me dear Brigitte. The hello are so sweet and the goodbyes

leave us wishing for better endings.
