gone today, here tomorrow

this one came by surprise,
as does so much of our lives,
just when we finalized our plans,
someone appears, or disappears,
something we hadn’t counted on,
something we couldn’t have.

for me, because change is the only constant,
surprises are the status quo,
whichever way they should fall,
into our living rooms or out,
i accept them as normal,
as part of the tapestry.

when change is held to be the only constant, I can never be disappointed for too long,
for too long be appointed to the illusion i am forever,
i am many in a world of change,
i am gone.
i am here again.
