Hellos are sacred.
They can be the first of many, and
The continuation of more to come.
Hold tight to those hellos.
Hold them close to you, and
Never release them.
For it is the goodbyes
That make it hard to hold tight to hellos.
 
Goodbyes are special.
They can be of temporary nature, or
Absolute permanence and finality.
Keep goodbyes safe.
Keep them near your heart, and
Never allow them to be final.
For it is the hellos
That force us to say goodbye.
