...nothing lasts forever

"It is so easy to see
Dysfunction between you and me
We must free up these tired souls
Before the sadness kills us both

I tried and tried to let you know
I love you but I'm letting go
It may not last but I don't know
Just don't know

If you don't know
Then you can't care
And you show up
But you're not there
But I'm waiting
And you want to
Still afraid that I will desert you

With every worthless word we get more far away
The distance between us makes it so hard to stay
But nothing lasts forever, but be honest babe
It hurts but it may be the only way"

Definitely my favourite song on the Maroon 5 album. It's the perfect conclusion of last academic year. I gained 2 especially outstanding friends that I pray that I'm fortunate to keep throughout my life, and also was able to welcome at least 1 friend into my life to a degree I didn't think would be possible. I lost 2 people in my life,not through death fortunately, but through the decisions made by both parties. It's sad,but so it goes. The thing, the mature thing,is to be thankful for the good times you shared with the person and be thankful for what they've added to your life,but often I think in terms of subtraction,ignoring the times,no matter how brief that the individual in question was wonderful. With that, I think I'm getting better at letting go.

"For ev'ry rose that withers and dies
Another blooms in its stead
A new love waits to open its eyes
After the old love is dead" -From Easter Parade

Basically,I'm trying to increase my magnanimity...
