goodbye to a fun-filled summer vacation,
hello to the hustle and bustle of school days jam-packed with learning.
goodbye to Maddie once more,
hello to her junior year at college.
goodbye to the ARC ten miler race,
hello to Hershey 1/2 marathon training.
goodbye to our family vacation by the lake,
hello to a beach get-a-way for just the two of us.
goodbye to the fireflies lighting up the night sky,
hello to the cicadas singing in the trees above.
goodbye to summer reading of nine ten, riding freedom, and booked,
hello to the thing about jellyfish, moo, and because of winn-dixie.
goodbye to you again as i start the school year without you here,
hello to the memories we shared and your words that echo in my ears.
goodbye to the sizzling days of the august summer,
hello to the crisp days of september and fall.
