For Those Who Walk Away


Sometimes you meet someone
that changes how
you look at the world,
and maybe that's all
they were there for.


Maybe everyone we meet
that touches us
isn't always supposed
to stay with us.


So take lessons from
the ones that walk away;
keep memories from
those that become distant.


Do not hold grudges
that harden your heart;
just accept the fact
that not everyone is
meant to stay forever.
