Our Different Paths by Shelby Boyde You are walking an odd path, A journey I may never see. Taking on a different life, One which wasn't built for me. You go for a left turn, As I try to make a right. You jump off the nearest edge, While I disappear with flight. I know we are moving forward, Even if our lives pull apart. You know a friend is always here, You are forever deep in my heart. As long as you are happy, Holding little to cry about. I can move forward from the past, A happiness I can feel throughout.
I have had a clip of this poem saved on my phone for a long time and finally chose to share this short entry. Many people face moments when their friendships drift apart due to distance or a small fight. I believe it is okay for friendships to fade, but I also believe the love we once felt for a person we saw as a true friend will never truly die. There are people I go months without speaking to but the moment one of us needs the other that silence is shattered. And I know it’s okay because everything is different for every person and sometimes we have to handle situations differently. It takes a big person to never let those old memories fade to black.
