If I seem distant
Or a little cold
If I seem insincere
Or a little anti-social
It's only because I'm avoiding saying goodbye
Or even thinking about saying goodbye.
It's not a forever goodbye,
Just a for now goodbye.
But it's still something I don't want to say
Please don't make me say it.
Let me whisper it at the last moment
With a hug and a tear and a smile.
