Here at the End

via Daily Prompt: Evoke

And here at the end, the goodbyes evoke the memories of hello,

the weight is lifted from shoulders, formality an afterthought,

laughter echoes as jokes become more lighthearted,

smiles on all faces, attempting to hide the sadness beneath.

You were all special, and I learned a lot,

but today is goodbye, and tomorrow anew,

and if I don’t see you again, at least the memories of hello,

and now, of goodbye, will remain with me for all time.
