A Farewell.

People so seldom say I love you and then it's either too late or love goes.........so when I tell you I love you, It doesn't mean I know you'll never go....only that I wish you didn't have to.

Only in the agony of parting do we look into the depths of love.

I said a last farewell to my dear brother two days ago, taken too early in life and defeated by the menace of cancer.

Love hurts.
