I have recently thought a lot about saying goodbye. I really never got a chance to say goodbye to Bruce. It has been like that for the losses I have faced. They have happened in my absence. It is definitely more about what I need than about the person I am saying goodbye to. But I would have liked to send my love and appreciation before the end.
But I wonder-do we ever really get a chance to express all of this? In some cases, probably most often we don't. Is it possible to ever really acknowledge our love before we know that we won't get another chance?
I lament being unable to be there as my friend is dying. And to say goodbye.
