the end of the academic year has arrived. the few short months you and i shared as friends have come to an end. where we once stood, closer than ever, we now must part--farther than when we were strangers. there is nothing worse than knowing someone for who they truly are and then losing them. not to sickness or death or drama but to life. things come and go and so did you. i hope that time brings you back around to me...that maybe just maybe that's the way the circle of life works. maybe in the fall you'll realize just what you let go and you will find the courage to come back to me. i will leave the porch light on for you. i will always save you a seat in study hall or in the cafeteria, just in case you decide to revisit the times we had together. i will always be one call away if you ever decide to ask for my number. i guess that is the hardest part of life for me... i will continue to love you even after you have hurt me whether it was intentional or not. you will always have a place in the back corner of my heart. i will always be a stranger waiting for you.
