You know what really hurts?

Goodbyes that you never thought would happen.

The moments that you thought are going to long atleast for some time but they end in just seconds like a click of the finger. The moments that make you realize what you actually are and the moments that make you realize what you actually crave for. The laughs, the tears, the words, the emotions, the breakouts, the frustrations, all of it that make you feel that you can also be a human is just what you need. And moreover, the person who made you feel all of this, is a being that you won’t forget even in darkest times of your lives.

Just before somedays you plan what are the things you actually want to do with the person and ‘kaboom’ there is this day where you see the person biding goodbyes to you, the moment of realization that only one person can actually do wonders to you.

Hardest part is when you realise that ‘everyday is just another day when we try to get by without them’. Fear of losing them wouldn’t go anyway but the only thing that you need to remember is what kind of people you are and what kind of bond you share.

‘Hold on, I still want you

Come back, I still need you’

The moment you realise the meaning of these words are last moments where you just stand there and see them leave, the helplessness that follows in, is the feeling that shows what actually, does that being means to you.

Even after knowing that the person is going to see wonders and experience some of the best things that could happen to them, the only thing that you want to still do, is hold on to them and wish that this could last for years. I know, It is hard to turn the page, when you know that someone won’t be in the next chapter, but as we say, the story must go on.
