More Footprints

I think it was last week when I posted the poem
Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Others stay awhile, make footprints on our
hearts and we are never, ever the same.
When I posted it, my heart was full of joy for all the people I listed.

Today my heart weeps for those that are no longer my friends. Some friendships just drifted off in time. Some friends died. Some friends dropped me from that status, deciding for whatever reason there was no friendship. It's hurt each time. I can honestly say I've never deliberately dropped someone as a friend.
Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain.
It's not something you learn in school.
But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship,
you really haven't learned anything.
•Muhammad Ali
I know the meaning of friendship. My heart is sad. The footprints are fresh.

Time will heal.
