Leaving Friends and Faces

So often we are afraid to say goodbye…
But with every goodbye, there is a new hello, a new face, a new voice…
We reencounter old ones too
Greetings that haven’t been shared for not just days, but maybe even years

We never know what’s around the corner
But we must always strive to look forward
Seek comfort in the knowledge that there are people behind on whom we had an impact
And more importantly, who had an impact on us

It is human nature to move on and explore
We never forget those closest to our hearts, nor they forget us…
And that new face, that new voice, that really interesting new person?
May one day, become a nice old friend
