    Frozen in time, frozen in place
    Happy carefree times gone without a trace
    Should be able to move on, rise above it all
    Instead I'm stuck, feeling scared, alone and small

    Bewildered, trying to understand what I have done
    what I might have said, why am I the only one
    to go through this life with so many pulling away
    left hurt and alone, words few, nothing to say

    The pain is deep, the searching intense to try to understand
    why people leave without a word, without a reprimand
    that would at least explain why, give a reason
    Are some friends only for a season?

    Like a statue cast in stone
    impenetrable, isolated, cold and alone
    I wish I could break free snap out of this state I'm in
    find a new way, new hope, new way to begin

    Circumstances a prison without a key
    no one to care, to visit, to help me
    No cure, no hope, pain a constant companion, a guard
    to keep from escape, from freedom, thoughts marred

    Like living in a glass house, the pain of longing to be outside
    life restricted limited to only that that remains inside
    Resources used no sign of aid or being replenished
    Stuck in this state of muck & mire, hurt & anguished

    Could that be why people have pulled and walked away
    So wish I could understand, what did I do or say
    that was wrong... Need to toughen up, not care
    Instead am frozen in fear with no one there...

    Reason Season Lifetime
    People always come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.
    When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do.
    When someone is in your life for a REASON,
    It is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly.
    They have come to assist you through a difficulty,
    Or to provide you with guidance and support,
    To aid you physically, emotionally, or even spiritually.
    They may seem like a godsend to you, and they are.
    They are there for the reason you need them to be.
    Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time,
    This person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.
    Sometimes they die. Sometimes they just walk away.
    Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
    What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done.
    The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on.
    When people come into your life for a SEASON,
    It is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn.
    They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
    They may teach you something you have never done.
    They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
    Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.
    And like Spring turns to Summer and Summer to Fall,
    The season eventually ends.
    LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons;
    Those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
    Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person anyway;
    And put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas in your life.
    It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
    Thank you for being part of my life,
    Whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.
