There's a moment in everyone's life where

a person who they thought would always be there disappears.

It might be because of death, divorce, money or pride, 

but for some people it's just the roll of the tide.

When you notice that person is gone,

it feels like there's nowhere in this world you belong.

What made you special that you got to stay?

What made them different that they got away?

It feels like you can't even breathe;

Pain sinks so deep it brings you to your knees.

A loss makes you see and feel

what you've never had to deal with before.

A loss is something that while painful

opens up many a door.
