Have you ever lost someone that meant the world to you? After a while, the


begins to ease. You may even forget
that they ever existed.Then,

you hear their favorite song, or you remember something funny that

they said; and the pain is renewed.
It seems as if you're standing still watching

them walk away, watching them walk out of your life yet again. When they

you feel an emptiness
--a void--
and you doubt that anyone could ever fill it...

because this
person has walked into your life and completely

changed everything you ever believed about life and
...that there's no way i could ever feel that way about somebody...
that no one would ever feel

about me...that it might not even exist....
and then just when you

that maybe you were wrong, it ends. you wonder if you ever even lost them--


you ever wanted was somebody who cared; somebody to be there for you in

darkest days;
someone to turn to when everyone else turns away. You

wanted to be there for them too. You wanted to listen when they needed to talk.
You wanted them to know that even when they weren't looking, you were

always there.

Is it normal to be like this? To feel this strongly, to care this much?

How do you describe losing someone who meant more to you in just a few months than most people you've known your whole life?

Was it just infatuation? Why is it
that I'm fine until something happens that makes me unhappy...

thats when I
think about them..when I'm sad.
Am I just scared of forgetting them,


that soon they'll be no more than just a faint memory of a short time in my life

when things seemed to be going ok?

And yet through it all, God is there. When you feel as if your world is


apart and the walls are crashing down, remember that you are never


He is always waiting there with open arms. No matter what you've done or how

long you've been gone, He will be there to wipe away your tears, to comfort you and

bring you home.

He has l<3ved you all your life, and He will never leave your side.

<{He is the only thing worth living for.>}

He knows where you have been, and He has already been where you're going.

Trust in him to lead the
way; step out in faith, and the bridge will appear.

Give everything up--there's
no way you can handle the struggles of life on your own.

Give it up..

and surrender to Him.

that was interesting, because i love how you not only use great imagery in your writing, but the actual format of the writing is thought through, which you don't see that often. you really make an emphasis on where you end your lines, i do the same thing. it's nice that you wrote about something you obviously strongly belive in.
