some people are sent to us for a short time

I'm trying to remember the name of this poem. I don't remember the exact words but some of the lines are like: 'Some people are sent to us for a short amount of time to help us learn a lesson, while others are destined to be with us forever.' The rest of it talks about telling people what they mean to you and another line says something about being sorry if you've ever done anything wrong in your friendship with them. Anyone know what it is?? Or even know what poem I'm talking about?

Thanks for reading my post, but I can't find the poem you suggested it might be. Do you know who the author is??
Thanks again!

Thank you for the link, but it's not the same poem I was trying to find. If anyone knows what it might be please post back! I really wish I could remember what the name is. I think it might have a Hawiian looking name. I think it's like three words and means something about friendship...?
Any Ideas??

Well that's not it either, but it sounds VERY similar to it. But in the one I'm thinking of, it had a line that said something about being sorry to those who you might have hurt in the past and at the end of the poem, it said somthing about always remembering to tell people what they mean to you.
Thank you so much for that other link though...It's close to it, the begining sounds a lot the same but I'd still like to find the one I was looking for...So again if anyone has another poem that you think it might be PLEASE help me out here! I'd really like to find it!!

It sounds like one of those poems that get continually forwarded through email. Perhaps it will come around again.
