I took what you gave me and saved it for a rainy day.
I put it in my pocket, carrying it with me on the way.
I'd checked on it in the sunshine, smiling at its essence, knowing that a day would come when I would need it's presence.

Sometimes people come into our lives to teach us how not to love, how not to settle for less than we deserve, how not to belittle ourselves for the sake of someone else. Yes sometimes the greatest loves leave, but it’s because they weren’t meant to stay, they came to teach us. And their lessons always stay. That is what matters. That is all that remains.
