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.

    Funny, but I was pondering about why goodbyes are so hard as I approached this prompt and then realized I wouldn’t do it justice. I see, now, that it was because you would tackle that feel with so much panache. Bravo!

    Leaving it like that, though, we will not value the past.

    I love your statement that in losing some people you can find yourself. So so true.
