Some People Stay

There’s a part of us that knows the possibility of gain and part of us that knows the possibility of loss. One day you can go to bed with a person a huge part of your life, and when you wake up the next morning, that person can be just a memory. No matter how strong you get, that knowledge is a part of us.

Sometimes, I want to tuck someone in at night and crawl beside them, just for awhile. I’ll just be there, same as I will in the morning, and I hope to eventually teach the other person another thing to carry with them always.

Some people stay.

Yes, yes, yes! I'm absolutely wordless here at your thoughts, but I definitely grasp them!

It's learning to acknowledge the reality of the ever present potential for loss that allows us to open, care, and share a part of ourselves just for the sake of it.
There are a few I hope will stay-at least for awhile. Hugs

Understanding and accepting loss can help make every moment with someone you care about vital and poignant.
