People come in and out of your life, sometimes just moments, sometimes longer, leaving implications that are so numbing you become mindless and are filled with despair because the moment is gone but also with un-sureful gratitude that you experienced a small touch of God's hand...something that touched you so greatly...or allowed you think about something in a different light...or showed you a piece of yourself you never knew...or opened the opportunity to experience something you would have never experienced without him or her...

You feel a sense of pain that the moment has passed you by but also of peace that you were supposed to meet that person...You want to cling to everything about them so you don't forget them...It reminds me of the quote from Peter Pan..."Never say good-bye because good-bye means going away, and going away means forgetting." How do you not forget? Do all good things come to an end? Johnny Cash sings 'Everyone I know goes away in the end'...It can be pretty damn depressing but I guess you live in the moment and do your best not to forget flashes of times that changed you, small little glimpses that are deep within...and you live to create that for another person and live to find it again...

(I am not an Optimist, probably more of a Pessimist because I have been hurt so many times...but perhaps the best way to describe my view would be that of a Realist...the pain of good-bye is real, very real- but I realize some good-byes are meant to matter how painfully real they are at the time or how misunderstood they are)
