to my friend

I still think about you, my friend.

Even though we haven't talked or contacted each other in months, and haven't seen each other in person for over a year, I still think about you.

Sometimes I've tried to hard to forget you because I know I need to let you go. It's time for us both to move on, and I thought I had done so. But the other day I came across a photo of you and I, and I remembered.

Is it something I did that made you leave? Is it something I said? Or was it just over? Simply time to move on?

I know that I really do love you, and because of that I have to let you go. But it hurts, sometimes, when I realize that we are not best friends anymore, even though I always imagined we would be.

I wish you all the best, I really do. Please know that I will think of you, from time to time, because you were a part of my life and I can't change that - I don't want to. I wouldn't change it for the world. Thanks for all the laughs, inside jokes, fun memories, and crazy times we shared together. I'm sad that it's over, but as the saying by Dr. Suess says, "Don't cry because it's over - smile because it happened."

One day I will come to the point that when I think of you, I will smile instead of cry. Thank you for being a part of my life. Keep following your dreams and changing the world, girl. And if you ever want to get together for a coffee or a sandwich, you let me know. Because I will always be your friend, just like you will always be mine.


P.S. I apologize that my last two posts have been angsty... but I've been writing what's on my mind/heart. I promise my next posts won't be such downers. :)


  1. Such a great post! I know how you feel in this post and I love whatever you post especially when its from the heart. :)

  2. Kara, I totally understand what you're saying. I feel that I could have written this, based on an experience I went through. Glad to know that I'm not alone :) Just remember that for those who seem to walk out of our lives, God sends new friends who can help us in different ways. Love ya! ~Haley

    1. Hi Haley dear! Thanks so much for the sweet comment and good reminder. Love you!

  3. Hi Kara!
    I really needed to read this now myself. The end of one road is coming, and the start of a new one in sight, and I've been thinking about some friends I've lost touch with through the years, or who I simply stopped hanging out with for no particular reason.
    I know I'll always remember them, and keep up with them, if only through mutual friends, but a part of me will always wish we'd kept in better touch.
    Your post was beautiful, and a wonderful reminder of friends old and new.

    1. Thank you so much for the sweet comment, Genevieve. Love you!

  4. Anonymous, I feel like I could have written this. Beautifully poignant.
