I lost a friendship today. We never met and didn't know each other long but that was of little consequence, we forged a connection which quickly grew familiar. Despite this we couldn't move past being in two very different times and places in our lives. So for reasons I'll leave unsaid, we mutually decided it was best to go our separate ways. Happily we parted on very good terms.
I'm not sure what to feel right now. It's very bittersweet. I'm upset that she and I won't talk anymore, we took great interest in each other. But I'm thankful we were given the chance, however fleeting, for our paths to cross. The thought wraps around me like a warm blanket; how wonderful it is the impact we all can have on each other.
My dear friend, I told you I'd someday try writing a Haiku. Here then is my first...
Morning bells wake with dawn
Your shadow fades at sunset
I'll remember you.
