To Those Come and Gone

To those who have come and gone in my life.

You are not forgotten,

We may not see each other, we may not speak,

But marks on the heart are never covered, lost, or unfelt.

Some marks are deeper than others,

Some have scarred over,

But I carry the memories with me,

Every day.

Circumstance has led to silence,

Sometimes I wish it wasn’t that way,

But my heart and arms are always open,

When those who fly away,

Eventually will,

Come back,

One day
