Come and Go.
One of the realities of life is that people come and go from it. At a young age, we already experience enough goodbyes that it begins to feel like ‘people leaving’ is not a question of if they will, but rather when they will. Out of the thousands of people we meet in our life time, chances are a lot of them become forgotten faces blended in with a crowd of strangers. But one of the saddest things we face is when that stranger was someone you once believed would be in your life forever.
These people you once called best friends, your boyfriend or girlfriend, and even family members somehow disappear from your life. And at this very moment, they are in the same world that you’re on, part of your history, but no where to be found in the present. I sometimes wonder what their life is like now. I wonder what it would be like if they were still part of my life. I question how someone I once was so close to could manage to vanish in my life as if they never existed.
But most of all, I wonder if they still think about me? I wonder if I managed to impact their lives like they impacted mine. Or have I become just another nameless face that has become forgotten It’s scary to me how there is someone out there that you could know so well and influenced your life so much but you have no communication with. People come and go from your life. Sometimes I just wonder where they ended up when they finally left.
