Because parting is such a sweet sorrow...........


Don’t you say Hello again, because I don’t have the strength to say Goodbye anymore. I’ll learn to embrace the cold that you threw towards me and let it to melt away the warmness in my heart instead. I’ll learn to accept the fact that your words doesn’t speak about me anymore. From now onwards, I will learn to cross the road without you holding my hand tightly, stopping me whenever I impatiently trying to get to the other side of the road.

When our favourite songs played in the radio, I’ll try to ignore the memories that came toiling behind those lyrics. When it comes to taking a bite of my favourite cheese burger, I’ll remember that you won’t be there to gently wipe away the mustard on the corner of my lips what’s more to keep me accompany for lunch. And so I’ll learn how to eat properly and alone next time. Somewhere along the way, if a stranger smiles, I’ll try to fast forward your never ending smile that could make me to leave the whole world behind just for that.

When the sunshine greets me, I’ll remember not to hope for a warm morning hug from behind my back. I'll even forget the morning coffees on the porch,the chocolate sundae in the drizzling rain.When the evening falls, I’ll make sure the windows and doors locked because it’s just me and the four walls tonight. I’ll try not to run towards the door anxiously whenever the door bell rang because it seemed that you have lost the track to my home.I’ll try to hide my disappointment whenever I mistaken a stranger for you at a departmental store because he look so much like you or maybe because I’ve just known only you all my life.

And yes now we have come to a crossroad that leads to different paths. I’m taking this side, and you’re taking that one. Don’t choose the same path as mine anymore. No,this time I don’t want to travel with someone who used to let my hands off in the middle of a journey.

It’s going to be a new journey, its going to be a lonely ride without you but somehow I can sense some freedom, a new breath and a new life, a new beginning that follows after a hopeless ending.

Here I am,destiny had brought me to the final page of the book and to my own dismay this book doesn’t deserve a second read.I'll bring it back to the shelves,let the pile of dust hide it away from my sight forever.


This time, I just couldn’t agree more with Shakespeare as ‘Parting is such a sweet sorrow’.

For someone who stole my heart, I’ve given a farewell as your gift……….

  1. Accepting the truth has always been the hardest thing to do...

    When you know that parting is inevitable, you get confused, whether to fight for the feeling to remain longer or to simply accept it and let go of it all.

    Even after making a decision, you are lost for the next few weeks doubting your heart. What I did was right?

    Acceptance is very hard to realize...

  3. It's a beautiful read. I have ready plenty of post regarding this theme and have always found the deep thrive pain yet complaints and some poisonous expressions.

    Your putting in such a subtle yet delicate way gave it a different edge. I loved the read. And the synchronising with the Shakespeare's signature - 'Partying is such a sweet sorrow'.

    Bless You.

  8. Is this what you're going through at the moment? It will take time. Give that time to yourself. I'm doing it myself.

  11. This reminded me of some song lyrics :) That he's being sent off with a brave heart, that the parting is accepted is what makes this mature, better than the rest.
