Reflecting on all the friends that have come and gone in my life
Shadows of Friends
Today I am reflecting on another friend who has been a part of my life and passed on. I swear I could fill a hall with the memories of friends and family that have touched my life and now are gone. Like shadows I can still see them, not clearly, but still here in my thoughts. On the verge of tears I ask God why. I plead for the impossible ….one more time together, one more touch, and one more time to say “Goodbye”.
This can’t be so I guess I’ll try not to focus on the sad but the joy and love they brought to my life. When something brings those friends to mind, I’ll take them to my heart for a while, I won’t try to forget. I’ll think of that special time we had together when we laughed or cried. Maybe it was a holiday, maybe a phrase or a song I hear. I’m sure a tear will occasionally still fall but I’ll also bring to mind that special memory that will bring a smile for there they stand, just out of sight, like shadows of friends.
