Goodbye is Freedom

A poem

Leaving leaves me with space for joy.
Just in time to be my own.
Self-esteem improved with the
distance. I hold her in higher affection.
I hold him with greater curiosity and
kindness and now freed I fly.
Unclipped wings return to
the nest, unpressed,
and taking time for rest.
