Blessed is who came, who left, and who stayed

There are people, who come very close to us, touch the most painful places, approach us with all their tenderness and love. You feel you can lean on them, show yourself as you are without any fear, and they are here. With you.
These people form our spine bone and stem, supporting us and giving their loving presence.
And then they go away, explaining nothing, or exploding with anger and frustration. As if the black crows came flying and took the spondyls out of the spine bone. It’s desperately hard to forget about these people even over time. Invisible strands continue pulling you to these people through time and space. But they are no longer over here. They’re gone. It’s time to grow new spine bone, your own, and become genuine support to yourself.
