Just in case

“I’ll call you later,”

Turns into tomorrow.

And tomorrow, 

Turns into “I’ll see you soon,”

And “I’ll see you soon”

Turns into Christmas cards

And Christmas cards

Turns into piles and piles 

Of calendars on the floor. 

I want to say, 

“I love you,”

Just in case it’s just 

Too hard to say goodbye.
