I smile as you walk away.

I don't smile for your absence, but your future.

I know you'll only go to greener pastures. I'm excited for you.

You're going to do and accomplish so much, and that makes me happy.

I know that I'll think of you from time to time, but this will not sadden me.

I refuse to be sad that my path crossed with that of such a wonderful person.

Instead, I'll be happy that it did.
