I signed the papers

With a cheap

Ball point pen

In gummy blackish ink.

It didn't hurt.

It didn't feel good.

It didn't feel like much at all.

We hugged

And said,

"I'll see you soon."

"I love you."

"Tell your family I said hi."

But the thing is

You are my family.

And I love you.

And I hope I see you soon.
