A Whisper

Hi.
A whisper,
Barely audible yet spoken from the soul,
Responded just in kind from a voice with a similar mind,
A hand held,
A heart felt,
Warm smiles accompanied by soft sighs,
Words and numbers exchanged with deft swiftness,
Lunch movies dinner all at his expense,
Quiet evenings spent giggling at the night sky,
Words exchanged, pleasantries not so pleasant anymore,
Amidst the how did we get here and you don’t feel me anymore,
Whispers rise steadily to an ultimate crescendo,
Words cut through the very depths of existence,
Then accepted,
And somewhere in all this a single word stills the storm,
A whisper,
Goodbye.
