Life is funny sometimes; you lose touch with things that once were the very reason for your existence. You sing, you dance, you cry with them, and then all of a sudden, they're gone. No longer a part of your life. Then, you move on and do the same things with the next person. It's a never ending line, with each dismissal the word 'Next!' is called, and the line progresses, each person moves up a spot in line to be in your life. People step up to the plate, become your world, and just as quickly leave it. I like to call those people fillers. They can be friends, lovers, real relationships. Regardless, they never stick around long enough to mean anything. If you learn to step out of the devastation that their exit may cause you, you see that the impact they had on your life is next to none. Then, you might find yourself stumbling, falling into a downward spiral, when all of a sudden, your body hits something. You find that person that catches you when you're falling, gets you through tears at three in the morning, completely abandons homework and assessments to be with you, and the one that never stops making fun of you just so they can make you smile. That one person who has always been there, never once abandoning you or leaving your side. You might fight, but it's always for each others best interests and because you care entirely too much to not argue for their happiness. At the end of the day, you want to spend your eternity with them by your side, and you smile to yourself whenever you imagine the prospect of your future. These people? I have really only met a few people like this. I can't fathom not having them in my life, when being away from them for a day makes me miss them. I call these people real friends. You makes jokes with these friends about being friends forever, or about getting married or living together one day, but you never realize that that's exactly what you want until it hits you that it could actually happen. The reassuring fact of the matter is, if you know you have them forever, you know that it really can happen, and if it doesn't-you still have them. Mind, spirit. But most importantly, heart.
