Saying Goodbye

24 Nov

Saying goodbye isn’t easy, but how do you say goodbye to a person going back to a war? A war you don’t believe in, a war you never supported, and a war that the both of you know isn’t right. To a person you only vaguely know, a friend of a friend but someone who is still happy to see that you came out for his farewell party.

Do you ask him to win it? To give ’em hell?

Do you tell him to come back alive for us?

What do you tell a man going to fight for a lie that no one believes anymore? How do you ask a man to die for that mistake?

And what do you say to a man before he returns to fight and die for this man’s mistake?

Make it back Alex. For us.
