13 Weeks of Goodbyes
by Danielle Font

I knew it would be hard
when we got togetther, she told me
I knew it would happen.
“its only 13 weeks.”
I kept putting it off.
Its still a while away,
so I thought.
I was wrong.
So many love songs,
so many hugs,
so many kisses.
I miss them all.
I woke up,
it was the day,
the last day together.
I could feel it in the air,
a heaviness,
a chill.
There, outside
in the warm sun,
I held her.
I kissed her.
The words wouldn’t leave my mouth,
they left hers first,
“goodbye
I love you
its ony 13 weeks.”
