you reached out to shake my hand, but I shook my head and opened my arms in a hug.

you stopped smiling and joking in a way that made me think that it was only in that moment that you realized I was really saying goodbye.

you kissed my cheek, and I never though a kiss from you could hurt like it did then. that was everything I had wanted, that was how close I had wanted to feel to you for a long time, but I had to let go…

and as we broke away, I didn't know that it would be last time that I would ever see that side of you.
