Destiny Fulfilled

Destiny Fulfilled

You said
the best way
to fulfill
one’s Destiny
is, sometimes,
to transition
into the next
world,
the next unfolding.
My breath clenched
with your words
my stomach lurched —
I wasn’t ready for you to go.
Silence took the place
where I wanted
there to be more words,
my words.
Yet, there was nothing
I could say,
you had decided.
I nodded
and hugged you
Good-bye.
