Let Go and Lose

“Oh, but summer’s not forevermore
No matter how we try
The trouble with hello is goodbye.”

– fr. lyrics of  The Trouble with Hello is Goodbye,
Sergio Mendez

 

LET GO AND LOSE
(for Mayette L., 1979)

it was you who said,
“yes, go home
but never leave me.”

and you who said,
“i let you go
but never lose me.”

and so, let go you did
and I left —

and lost you!

(between
take-up and give-up
is a sigh.

between
hold-on and let-go
is a cry.)

– goodbye
 is between
sigh and cry.

(c) 1979 Chito L. Aguilar
