A Great Chapter


You want everything to stay the same until you’re ready for it to change. But you can’t do that. You can’t expect the whole world to stand still until you’re ready. In order to move forward you’ll have to let go of the past. Leave it all behind – close the chapter and start fresh.

There comes a point in your life when you know who stays forever, and who’s just gonna be around for a while. People change. The world is changing. Everything has an ending. Sometimes for the best, and sometimes for the worst. But it’s good to know that you’re not in it alone. People lie, and some just don’t care. No matter how much pain you’re in your heart won’t stop beating.

People fall in and out of love all the time. Friends turns into lovers. Lovers to enemies. Enemies even to best friends. There’s nothing we can do about what we feel – or how we feel. Love goes both ways. You have to give – to get. Will two people be strong enough to survive everything that may come their way? You’ll never really know. You can’t feel safe – or maybe for a while. But there comes a point in everyones life where you have to fight.

Everything will be okay eventually- there are always people in your life that just make your day – no matter the miles that’s keeping you apart. The distance – don’t tell me it’s easy, because it’s not. But it’s worth it – every single mile. I’d rather keep in touch with the people I love – than just drop it and forget about it. You don’t forget the ones you love. It doesn’t work like that. Love will always win. It’s what we feel that keep us alive – the feelings.

You make me feel like I’m myself, instead of being someone else – but I can’t blame you for what you’re thinking. I guess you’re thinking that you never knew me at all. That I didn’t care – but I did. And I still do. I just tried to protect you from everything I’ve been through, but we got lost along the way. I know I’d let you down, and I promise – if I could take it all back, I would do it all differently. But I can’t. So I’ve decided to move on – I’ll have to let you go. We had a good time – and the memories will be with me till’ the end.

We made a great chapter, but there’s still a lot unwritten chapters left – more pages to fill with great memories that awaits in the future. The book won’t write itself and we’ll never know what the future will bringwhere we’ll bewho we’ll be withor how we’ll get there. The only thing we can do is to live in the moment and hope it will be something good.
