Adiós, Au revoir, Ta Ta, Bye, Goodbye… Call it what you want, I just hate “Goodbyes”. They are heartbreaking. As I live far from home, I have had the privilege of saying bye in every form of transportation!
A goodbye in an airport is the least satisfying. You hug your loved ones, say goodbye, after which you see them stand in queues, then disappear. But you know they’re still there. You wait in the parking lot outside, waiting to catch a glimpse of the plane when it takes off. And you silently say goodbye again to your friend who is no longer visible, as the plane zooms towards the sky.
Goodbyes in buses are a mixed affair. After a deep-hearted goodbye, the loved one boards the bus, and then you see him in a window, waving as the bus speeds away. Often, it takes quite a while before it does so, leaving you disenchanted as you and your friend can see and communicate with each other without experiencing the intimacy of your friendship.
I have been there… being seen off and seeing off people!!! And even after so many years I hate it! its heartbreaking I tell you, just heartbreaking…. They should be called BadByes ‘coz they leave you feeling really bad…
