Some goodbyes bring happiness. It's not apparent in the moment. One may feel a lightness only a few days later. "See you soon" begins to sound like a promise that is too hard to break. "I miss you" becomes much more than something said to fill silence. "I hope to be with you again" feels like balm -- a sweet, soothing song. Mornings become bearers of good news, a complete departure from the dread they once brought after a loved one has left. And then it's nearer and nearer, that moment of togetherness. The end of missing each other. Hello again.
