‘No one is ever really gone. When you remember them, they live on.’
But really, what is the essence of ‘remembering’? Believe it or not, people forget, even when they said they wouldn’t. And between every intervals of time when the memory is resurfaced, the amount of time needed is longer. It would get to the point when, instead of reliving the memory itself, that person would just remember the mere fact of its existence; and then, nothing. The memory becomes forgotten, unswept and dusty, hidden in the dark corners of one’s mind.
