They come and go

Some stick around,

But only for awhile


Some build You up

Others bring You down

Time is the one 

Who shows You who’s Real


Meeting new People  

Can be exciting 

But at the same time

Can be nerve racking 


At first You don’t know who They are

But slowly They start opening up

You share secrets, fears, and memories

But then something doesn’t add up


After such fun times

They start distancing themselves

You blame Yourself

Not knowing Why


But then Your Eyes open

They finally see

What life does

To help You succeed 



It puts people in Your way 

To help You learn life lessons 

That stay with You Forever
