But that’s life right? Some things and people are not meant to stay no matter how much we wanted them to. Because if they are bound to leave, whatever we do to prevent that from happening won’t change anything because they will still leave. We just have to be glad that for once we had them no matter how excruciatingly temporary their stay in our life was. Because the hole is already big to patch things up. The gap is already wide to cross and the cut is already too deep to cure. Maybe at some point we’re meant to have them, but to keep them is another story. Maybe they are meant to travel with us but not meant to stay until we reach the end of our journey. And all we can do is to miss them, to miss the moments we’ve had with them, to miss the things they do that no one can, to miss their presence in our lives. That no matter how hard we try to look for them in every person we would meet, we can’t because they are irreplaceable. Sadly, it’ll hurt them more if we try to keep them. And that’s the downside when you get attached to someone for so long, when they leave, part of you leaves with them. The only choice left is to hope that we don’t get carried away by the remnants they left us with.
