And just for thought...
It comes and it goes, these beautiful waves of life
Where you don't know if you are sinking or swimming
Watching the world around you change, fixate,
And then change again
You watch the people who once sat at your table get up
one by one
Realizing not every exit hurts as much as you thought
Because what is life if it not a constant change of scenery?
I loved you and once loved that love is always there
Even if I watch you walk away
Even if I leave you behind
I smile at the smiles I see on the faces
And my heart swells knowing that I once touched your life
Though my presence now seems fleeting
Almost like I was never there at all
But the marks we leave on each other stay
Flashing like memories
Float back like dreams
Dancing behind eyelids
Lightning bugs on a warm summer night
There are tables we all come back to
Where the people that stick will always be waiting for you
And how lovely it is to see the faces that stay
Because what is this life without the bricks we build?
You, my friend, will be more than a ghost to me, more than a memory that flashes
Sometimes when we leave, we are forgotten
A thought that once scared me
But I know eventually we all will be
And for now I can take solace that I am here,
I am here in this moment with you as something real,
as someone real
Because what good is life if we do not live each moment?
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
