My biggest fear

Is to one day never see someone again

And to never know what ever happened to them

Whether they remember me

If they ever became the person they dreamed

If they decided to pack up and move

If they won their battle against cancer

Or passed away one day and I just never knew.

Well the other day

I was working when a customer came

And a coworker asked how his wife was

"Well, we just buried her today"

Then it dawned on me


This is her husband.

And I never got to say goodbye.
