The morning sun illuminates
the beauty of flowering Hibiscus
in Michelle’s carefully tended greenhouse.
No matter how you say it, parting
is always a moment of brokenhearted
sweet sorrow, singing—So long it’s been
good to know you, but I’ve got to be rolling along.
Your sadness is just as sad for me.
I’m hoping to reunite with my loving wife
who promised to wait for me as she was dying.
I kiss you all goodbye.
Have no fear, we will all be together again
