The Sweetest Hello – Written Tuesday 10th July 2001 (Aged 26)

The Sweetest Hello

i can tell you right now,
that you are the final goodbye
to the childhood,
and the teenage years
you are the next phase in my life
you are the next chapter
for some years now,
i have been ghost writing
but you write so well
so be part of all this
i want to see what story you tell
i can tell you right now,
you’ve made me grow into something else
something i could never have imagined
something that only adds to myself
and i can see us now,
even though i am not a fortune teller
and there is nothing more i can say
fortunes are now told
and fortunes are made
i can tell you right now,
you are the sweetest hello
the sweetest hello,
to a new and promising phase
