Don't Say Hello


I ask you this, it may seem harsh
But it's something I truly know
For one thing I ask you never to do
I beg you don't say hello.

Don't say to me hi or how do you do
Or even a simple good day
Please trust me on this it's nothing personal
There really is no other way.

When those that I love say to me hello
A big smile grows on my face
And a feeling of warmth fills me up complete
In my heart there's no longer a space.

Yet in the end my heart does break
After all hellos are said
For afterwards they walk out the door
My happiness becomes dead.

Although a hello from you will make
My happiness soar real high
I know that after every hello
There is always a tragic goodbye.
