People may enter our lives through many different doors
Some stay forever, while others only pause

Did they happen here by chance or was it really fate
Their impact is not always known until a later date

Some accept the loss, while others continue to feel pain
We need to reflect on the positive in order to see the gain

Our children leave eventually and go their separate way
After having explored a bit they might come back some day

Often we will connect with that special love or friend 
It could last forever or have an unjust end

A sudden departure may signal a change has just occurred 
It may trigger sadness and leave our vision blurred

Understand that sometimes separations might be for the best 
True love and friendship can endure emotions greatest test 

Just say adieu for today, there is no need for blame
Special people will remember more that just your name

Should they not return, understand they still may care 
Remember life is always changing, not everything is fair

 Robert Beau

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.  ~Never say goodbye if you still want to try. Never give up when thereís hope to go on. Never say you donít love them Ö if you know that youíre the one that canít let go.
