The Pieces of Me

the-pieces-of-me

The chapters of my life flash before my eyes as I try and fall asleep.


I think about the people that I once loved but have lost touch with. I can't help but to wonder where they are and who they've become since our paths last crossed.


I see the places that I have been and the footprints that I left behind when I decided to move on. I wonder if my initials are still carved into the bark on that tree, or if the ring that I lost is still hiding somewhere in that hotel room.


I feel things that I felt once before all over again. The love, the hurt, the joy and the pain all served such beautiful purpose and made me the person that I am today.


I remember the faces and the scenery and the surreal but wonderful memories that came with every hello and goodbye.


I will never forget these bits and pieces of me. I will hold on to them in my heart until the time comes for me to leave this world, and maybe even when I go on to the next.
