Just the Same

Just the same as when he said goodbye.

The door closed softly as he left 

Behind him, the chaos and confusion reigned 

No one looked up as he walked away 

Just the same as when he said goodbye. 

All the words he used to tell his story 

Fell upon their apathetic ears 

Never truly understanding what I had said 

Just the same as when he said good-bye 

He left a note for those who cared 

Explaining the what, when, and why 

All the while knowing it would really matter 

Just the same as when he said good-bye 

So long ago, he had passion and faith 

An innocence and naivete about this world 

Only looking for a place to belong 

Just the same as when he said good-bye 

So much time and energy wantonly spent 

So many opportunities neglected and gone 

For the sake of earning their love and respect 

Just the same as when he said good-bye 

With wisdom earned from a lifetime  

Denial and delusion to fit the norm 

Only pain and loss revealed the truth 

Just the same as when he said good-bye 

No last looks over his shoulder 

No lingering pause to wait for the reply 

Defiantly stepping into the unknown 

Just the same as when he said good-bye 

Today, much stronger and more whole 

Younger in spirit and renewed of mind 

The past becomes an album of faded pictures 

Just the same as when he said good-bye 

Keenly focused on the present moment 

Allowing any future to remain unformed 

Alone yet complete in his own perfection, 

Just the same as when he said good-bye
