Are You A Reason, A Season, Or A Lifetime ?

I just got back from attending a farewell party for a good friend of mine who will be working in Africa for at least one year. We met at school over five years ago and have been friends ever since. She was a transfer student from another state. Even though she will be living far away, I know we will keep in contact. I consider her a lifetime friend. Thinking of her leaving reminded me of all the moving around I did. I was always leaving friends or getting left because they moved. It was never easy, and it didn’t get easier as time went by. There were always tears, followed by sadness, and sometimes just a deep feeling of lonliness. You keep in contact for awhile and then one day one of you just stop writing. There was no fight, no reason, you both just stopped. I learned that friends come and go, and your life goes on. I have made new friends since that time — some have come and gone, and some have remained.

Anyone else out there experience the same thing?

Ever wonder why?
