It's funny really- how people you never thought would vacate your life suddenly just disappear without a trace. No indication, no last goodbye. Just the absence of their pressence and a small hole in your heart. A void where their smile once was and their laughter, the laughter you hear in your dreams, still ringing in your ears.
But is it a loss? If someone doesn't want to be a part of your life anymore, should you mourn their absence? It's hard when there's no warning, not even an inkling that everything isn't absolutely perfect.. All of the hopes and dreams for the future vanish, and you're left with your own thoughts and every "what if" in existence. You bury all of the dreams you had for the future, and you get on like you did before all of this ever happened.
And then there are the people who enter your life by chance, by a pure stroke of luck. Someone with a contagious smile and laughter that becomes your favorite song. Someone who makes you forget about the ones who've walked, and who makes you excited about what the future holds. Someone who gives you hope.
