There are people in life who end up leaving you
And you don’t know when you’ll get to see them again
Sometimes, you don’t know if you’ll ever get to
But then there are others who check up on you,
even if you haven’t seen them in ages
and they are willing to sit down and listen
in spite of not understanding the way your mind works
and there are those willing get lost with you
in order to help you get back on track
Who are willing to step out of the periphery
so you don’t have to stand alone.
Remember, there are those who want to see you smile again.
And although you might be thankful for what the goners have left you,
the more you should be thankful for those who remained
for they chose you above all the things you see wrong in yourself.
So, for those dear to me, near and far:
Know that there are people who broke me,
but your friendship is the glue keeping me together
no matter how many times I fall apart.
Thank you for choosing to stay.
Thank you for choosing me.
