There are some people you meet who
forever leave an impression upon you.
It is as if he or she has left a handprint on your soul;
a permanent reminder of
the uniqueness, loveliness, and beauty of
the friendship that
you and that person created.
No amount of scrubbing,
or painting over
that handprint can remove its residue.
No other person can quite match the distinct
and length of
the palm and fingers that lay
stamped upon your heart.
There's no replacement.
There never will be.
