You taught me that there’s a sincere difference between living in a city and belonging in it

You taught me patience in a hurry 

You taught me the art of letting go when I didn’t realize I was holding on

You taught me to say thank you 

when I thought I was grateful enough already

You taught me that sometimes goodbyes aren’t permanent but neither are hellos

You taught me that you shouldn’t have to tell someone they love something 

You taught me that life goes on and on 

even after you are gone 

and that I will get along 

 just fine .
