A goodbye

I’ve found the following poem on the internet back in 99 or so and I memorized it since then. It has continuously helped move on numerous times. It says it all when dealing with a broken heart or other similar disappointments. Thanks to whomever wrote it!


I will not be love’s slave

and though i might weep I will not pine

life is made for better things than self made misery

and if I’m to sacrifice my self and fear not my fate

then the dance must be with light feet

to celebrate every new day

what has not been given cannot be promised nor will I have it in any other way.
