Something I found on a bathroom wall a few years back, thought it was very true at the time, and every time I have seen it since, it seems ever more true.
Some people come into our lives and quietly go.
Some people move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom.
Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon.
They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.
I love this. Makes a lot of sense of everything. Basically for me it means cherish every day you have with the people in your life, and cherish the good memories and what they left behind when they're gone.
