I got news today about someone leaving.
I am sad.
I am drawn to these words from the Musical, Wicked, the song FOR GOOD:
I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you…
I immediately found some comfort in knowing that, with technology, we can easily keep in touch.
I, a lover of books and believer that through story, we learn how to live, immediately thought of the book to give this person as a remembrance of our time together and a help in the future.
People will continue to cross paths with me.
And I’ll continue to feel sad when they leave.
