The Comings and Goings of Friendships

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.
