I think love is when you know that there are plenty of other people you could fall in love with, but yet that one person is the only want you to put in the dedication for. The only one who you want to wake up in the morning beside. The only one you want to be with at their best and worst times. The only one you want to feel safe with. The only one that you want to spend the rest of your life with despite any obstacles that may be thrown along the way. But love is also wanting that other person to be happy. And sadly, sometimes that other person realizes maybe their happier without you. But that doesn’t mean you have to become bitter towards them. Despite all of the pain they might be putting you through, despite how furious and broken your heart may be due to losing someone you wanted to grow old with. You should still want them to be happy. Because sometimes people come in your life, not to stay, but to make you a better person. So be grateful for the time you were so privileged to have with someone you really loved and be grateful that God lead them to you, even if your upset that they weren’t meant to stay forever.

Winston Churchill left an apology letter
on his bed before escaping a prison that
"I have the honour to inform you
that as I do not consider that your
Government have any right to detain me
as a military prisoner, I have decided to
escape from your custody. I have every
confidence in the arrangements I have
made with my friends outside, and I do
not therefore expect to have another
opportunity of seeing you.“
He went on:
“I therefore take this occasion to observe that I consider your treatment of prisoners is correct and humane, and that I see no grounds for complaint. When U return to the British lines I will make a public statement to this effect. I have also to thank you personally for your civility to me, and to express the hope that we may meet again at Pretoria before very long, and under different circumstances. Regretting that I am unable to bid you a more ceremonious or a personal farewell,
