Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared beneath the stars above
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known you’d ever say goodbye

The memories we have in the past will always be treasured no matter how bad or good they were. Encountering breakups, pain, and being alone in life is fine, but staying somewhere where you are not happy, valued, or appreciated is not fine. Remember, there will always be the perfect person for you. A person who does not want anything but your love, trust, support, and lots of affection. Learn to wait for the right time for that person to come.
