Even if love is a human construct

Say goodbye with a hug
that says I love you
and with words as well
even when people are busy
even when you can’t find them
keep looking
continue to search
until you find them
don’t leave
without saying goodbye
with a hug that says
I love you
even if love is a human construct
and always hug
and kiss goodbye
and hello
please always let them know
I love you
always let them know
you are my sister
always let them know
because even if one time
you’re running late
and you stop looking
and you leave without saying goodbye
without words or a hug
and you go to bed
and you wake up
sometimes it’s too late
and today it’s too late
but this is life
and regret is a knife
and now you bleed
but grief is sharp as well
so you’ll wind up bleeding either way
but just to be safe
always say goodbye
with a hug
that says I love you
and always say it with words
it’s just three words
and in case it’s been awhile
since we’ve said goodbye
just know
I love you
