The ones that matter

The here. the now
the loved ones around
the loved ones gone and the ones to be found
the ones you keep and will stay here
the ones you've lost but still hold dear.

Like your favourite toy from when you where small
still special people you feel for them all

People will stay close to you forever
or they will pass like a nearly found treasure

The ones that stay and are good for your soul
are the ones meant for you, for your heart and whole.

Be careful and try to protect your mind
and the one to look after it, you will find.

Good luck x x

    Very true Sally. Even the one's no longer around, living or dead. The moment you shared with them is all that counts anyway. PS feels that way to me. I've never been this intimate with strangers before. it's certainly something I'll hold with me for the rest of my life regardless of where I end up. Thanks for writing. -Yoni
