Emptiness



Each one of us 
has a special person in our life. 
A person 
who is an inspiration, 
a believer and a guide. 
That person can be anyone. 
A friend, 
a sibling, 
a parent, 
a lover 
or sometimes, 
just a stranger. 

And, 
when that person 
walks out of your life, 
it is never the same. 
The person leaves 
an emptiness behind, 
emptiness that can never go. 

The void, 
the gaping hole stays with us, 
pointing at us, 
telling us
that we are incomplete. 

However hard we try, 
we can never be complete again. 
That part of us is lost forever. 
The best choice 
is to accept it 
and move ahead with life. 
Live with it. 
What we can also do 
is try and make sure 
that we are never the reason 
behind the emptiness 
in someone else's life.
