[Poem] After all the Goodbyes have been Said...

After, all the good byes have been said, why do they linger still?
He begins in right earnest on something new
If he lags she pitches in, with a bad joke, even a miscue

After, all the goodbyes have been said, why do they linger so?
Do either of them know
The sleep they seek
Would elude them still
He would keep the clock company
And she would stand sentinel to the stars

 After, all the goodbyes have been said, why do they linger on?
When the moon becomes the sun
Is it always day in their rosy world?

After, all the goodbyes have been said, why do they linger still?
Do they fear waking
Only to find that it was all a dream?
