Did you meet a new person today? Were you glad when they left Or hoped they would stay? Not everyone will turn into a friend for which we are grateful from beginning to end. Some friends aren't what we had expected Friendships aren't easy So don't feel rejected Some of them bless us by staying awhile They leave us fond memories That can still draw a smile Some of them make us glad when they leave Not what we hoped for Not what we perceived Each one we meet as some potential to teach us a lesson Learn something essential. Each person we meet is a blessing or curse We hope they aren't bad But sometimes they're worse.
