what comes between hello and goodbye?
what comes after now before then?
how long is it between tonight and tomorrow
or are there any tomorrows?
how much farther is there to go
between two points when they are near;
and how near is near
or far is far
between two points so far
and if they are just so far
then is it really near?

One thought on “between hello and goodbye (poem)”
Masterfully written. “What comes after now before then?” I enjoyed reading this.
