Impermanence: some people aren't meant to stay in our lives forever

Impermanence
by H.N.


Some people aren't meant to stay in our lives forever.

Maybe
they were meant to help us forget; 
to help our hearts heal
faster, easier.

They were meant to pick us up,
dust off our knees,
and remind us of everything we are,
and could possibly be.
A beautiful reminder. A promise of a brighter future.
Our own secret little metaphor of hope and better days; 
sunshine and warmth; happiness, even. 

They were meant to help us look for—seethe silver lining of things.
View the world from a different perspective. Love our scars.

They were meant to influence our lives through little things we'd often take for granted;
Like through good music. Or through books by authors you've never heard of before. 
Or through conversations on life, on passion, on questions like where-do-you-see-yourself-in-ten-years; 
on politics, or on ice cream flavors, or on stories of how we got our pets, or the stupid things we did back when we were children.

You see, the thing is
some people will bring happiness—the genuine kindafter what seemed too long since.
Some will make us believe again. In the world. In humanity. In ourselves. Sometimes, maybe even in love,

but 

we have to remember

that some people will make us hope for things, wonderful things, we'd never even imagine ourselves hoping for

but they weren't meant to stay in our lives forever.
