Goodbye And Thank You

Have you experienced something like this? Fell for someone, hard, but it just wasn’t meant to be? Were you able to see them as a friend ever again? Fortunately, I was.

Poem 28 of 365 –

I’ve been thinking about you,
But not in the way you’d think.
I can feel myself not chasing you,
Not teasing myself anymore.

When we said goodbye,
I didn’t know if I could
Really leave you, but I tried
And trying is what I’m thankful for.

Thank you for pushing me away.
Thank you for letting me breathe again.
And thank you, God, for the clay
You breathed into,
To make such a wonderful friend.

~ Essie
