Your smile in the morning.
Here I am sitting on the edge of a field of white stratocumulus clouds with my feet dangling playfully over the edge. I'm wearing a naturally white shirt with a fairly open neck, a light blue scarf, shorts that make you think of the summer and no shoes because you have to be barefoot when you're sitting on the top of a cloud. The same way you have to be barefoot when you go to bed. The sun is rising as it does every morning. The rays of the sun reach my feet slowly and start to warm them up - I wiggled my toes - with my whole heart uprising as well. I finally open my eyes because it's time to wake up. It's morning already. As I open my eyes the world becomes bright again and I can see colors. I can also see one of the most wonderful things in this little world: your smile in the morning.
People in your life are there for a reason. You haven't met them in vain, no, not at all. You can spend your whole life just living with the people in your life without fully understanding why they are there in the first place. But when you sit down on your favorite chair and start to think about the various human beings that make your life what it is, a whole new world appears in front of your eyes. Sometimes you can go through this thought process alone but sometimes a person has been placed in your life to help you realize what people in your life mean to you.
I know I will know the meaning of quite a few people in my life next year when they will be taken away from me, or me from them. I will also get to know the meaning of the people who will be in my life for the whole next year as well. I also know that next year will be a year when I will get to know why I am in the lives of other people. I know it's not my place to say why I am in the life of another person. But it's my place to do what my heart and my mind tell me to do with the time given to me with that person. After all, for all I don't know, I could be the most important person in their life or they could be the most important person in my life. And that's saying a lot.
"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." -J.R.R. Tolkien
