Good-bye

I never got to say Good-bye,

I never thought I had to,

Coming home from school all those times,

Opening the kitchen door

And knowing you would be there,

Saying,

“Hola Chiquita, how was school?”

I never thought about the day when you wouldn’t greet me,

Because childhood innocence

Promised me you would be there

Forever.

The last time I saw you,

I was going away

Looking toward the adventure

Too excited to look back

I promised myself I would come back to say "hi."

We would speak in your language instead of mine,

And you’d say,

“Muy Bien, Chiquita, I’m so proud.”

Well, now I'm back

But you're not here anymore

And no matter how much I scream and cry about the unfairness

I will never see you smile again.

No matter how many doors I open,

You’re not behind any of them.

 I never got to say good-bye

Because I always thought I would have one more hello

One more hug,

One more day after school,

Now I have neither

You've gone on your big adventure

But you can't come back.
