Parting can be such sweet sorrow
June 27, 2017
In life it seems more than often we lose people in out lives in one way or another. But what does it really mean, we need to look at the different ways we “lose” people. Sometimes its in a good way, Is it good riddance instead of good bye? Is it ending something instead of having something end? Is it not wondering about someone, not worrying about them, not missing them after the goodbye is said? Not having someone in your life is not always bad. We can all relate to bidding an former significant other adieu as a good thing. But when you think about the things you don't have to deal with anymore, like cleaning up after someone, getting someone from a bar late at night when you have work the next day, knowing your not going to get the money you let them borrow back, Not having to pretend something is funny, not listening so certain music, does it give you a twinge of remorse?
What about when someone leaves unexpectedly? Maybe an unforeseen breakup, getting fired out of nowhere and having to say goodbye to work friends, or getting kicked out of an apartment cause of an untrustworthy roommate. What if its a final good bye, one you didn't plan for, that you hoped would never come. A goodbye from a hospital bed, or over the phone, or what if you didn't get to even haven't the chance to say good bye. In the blink of an eye you are on the end of a phone call that is someone letting you know you'll never be able to say goodbye, say im sorry for that one time you both started yelling at each other over nothing, never be able to say thank you again for everything they did for you, say you were right about that one relationship that was terrible, or let them know how different everything would be when they leave and how difficult it would be.
Final words to are not always lasing, its more often off the cuff and forgotten, and then you realize those words were the last they change the meaning of them. A, “Ill talk to you soon ok,” or “I love you too,” is such a hard pill to swallow when that is where it ended.
