You can lose people

You can lose people you know.
Or they can lose you. It amounts
to the same thing – loss and a dis-
connection between you and them,
in ways never expected, never
imagined, never dreamed in the
deepest nightmare, never thought
possible, never considered, never,
never, never….. but it happens and
you realise, that somehow, in a
moment of endings and beginnings,
they are gone. They are lost to who
they were, and so lost to you, and
in that losing, that letting go, that
disconnecting, lies a new path to
your own becoming, and to theirs,
although now, the chances that
your paths will cross have become
less, at least until, you find them
again, or they find themselves,
which amounts to the same thing.
You can lose people you know.
