Two beautiful girlfriends lost their Dads today. A dear friend passed away a few weeks ago, one other last year. I just lost a close friend too who has been a witness to my life for nearly ten years; but in the last year or so, I could barely recognise him and how we slowly became strangers…. I mourned his loss and then accepted it. Sometimes, losing someone allows us to find them. Distance and absence help us see someone who has been close to us more clearly. Through time, one starts to understand what has happened. I’m sure I will, but I never would want to go back to the same thing we’ve left. I guess nothing is permanent, things change. We can’t hold on to what we have, and we move on, but I still believe in love that is constant and eternal – I know it exists, I believe in undying friendships, in mutual respect, in fond memories shared with loved ones, in reminiscing fathers and mums who have gone home to be with the Lord. Tonight, I realise, nothing ends.
