In the script of your life
there are main characters,
and supporting characters
who will come and go
according to
the duration of their roles,
not a day longer,
not a day too soon.

And there will also be
the mere walk-in roles.

No matter how crucial they must seem
to you,
some people were never meant
to do
more than
give the other players
their cues.
Then they leave.
And you won’t find them in the script again.

They may be
the most harmless of angels,
the vilest of monsters,
or somewhere in between.
But they were never meant to stay.

Don’t pretend
your life revolves around them
when you know
they’ve already fulfilled their purpose.
They were good to you that way.
They’ve moved on.
You should too.

you can’t have it all.
