Orlando Gallo / Goodbye

Madre e hijo
Gustav Klimt

By Orlando Gallo


Today my daughter drew with her finger in the air
an incipient goodbye
towards me over her mother’s shoulder.

We celebrated I for a long while
that first real gesture she made
even though it  provides evidence of a harsh reality:

Life trains us early
for farewells.
