between hello and goodbye (poem)

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?

    Masterfully written. “What comes after now before then?” I enjoyed reading this.
