Somewhere between...

Somewhere between the procrastination...
and the home life....
and the incessant forwards...
and the friendships...
and the calls to each other complaining about LIFE...

Somewhere between the phone calls to old friends...
And the "I miss yous" & the "I love yous"...
And the "What are we doing tonights?"...
And somewhere between all of the aging,
changing, growing... 
Somewhere between the everyday life...
And the daydreams... 
And the sleepless nights...
And the naps because of the sleepless night...

 I forgot.

I forgot what growing up is all about.
I forgot what it meant to cry...
I forgot that pretending to be happy
doesn't make you happy...
And that pretending to be smart
doesn't make you smart...
I forgot that you can't just forget the past
in fear of the future...

I forgot that you can't control falling in love...
And that you can't make yourself fall in love...
 I learned that I can love...
I learned that it's okay to mess up...
 And it's okay to ask for help...
And it's okay to feel like crud...

I learned.

I learned it's okay to complain and whine
to all your friends for a whole day...
I learned that sometimes the things you want most
you just can't have.
 I learned that the
BEST PART OF LIFE IS NOT GETTING AHEAD;
It's the friendships, which means taking chances. 
 I learned that sometimes
the things we want to forget
are the things which we most need to talk about...
 I learned that letters from friends
are the most important things...
and that sending cards to your friends
makes you feel better.

But, basically, I just learned that my friends...
both old and new...
are the most important people to me in the world.
Without them, I wouldn't be who I am today...


So this is a thank you
to all of my friends for always being there.
