When you love someone deeply for a long time, losing them is something that is difficult to face. If they are gone, your love for that person will always stay the same. For some people, even if years have gone by, they still feel the same. Nothing can take away the love they feel for that person, especially if that person is the one you always thought to be the person you were supposed to spend the rest of your life with.
