And I know that people say goodbye long before they mean to... and that moment of realization.... when they've accepted the truth of their leaving, is the most poignant moment.

Every day after that is a little farewell to places they'll never see again, to people at impromptu meetings whom they won't talk to again.

And when it comes to the adieu, the dissolution is complete, and there are no more farewells left to say... and perhaps that's why some people don't cry at goodbyes, because they've done the hard part all before.
