♪ Looking through your eyes
I could never find a safer place
Even if I tried…
Don’t ever let me go
I know I’m ok
Wrapped in your arms…. I’m home ♪
Don’t let me go… Keep me in your arms…
To all the fantastic people I’ve met over here in England; to you guys who are my friends and who it is so hard to say goodbye to, to all of you… Caroline, Melody, Jamie, Becky, Jenna, Laura, and the lovely twins Stela & Julia, to each of you… I’ve never thought it was going to be that hard, but leaving you here literally is a HEARTBREAK!!!
Not a long ago, a friend reminded me that… “Goodbyes are not forever. Goodbyes are not the end. They simply mean I’ll miss you until we meet again!” Even if it doesn’t seem like it right now, even if it’s still hard to believe, even if everything looks like it is all over… when you truly think about it, it’s just… true! And as hard as it is for me right now, as painful as all these goodbyes are (whether they were said in London this last weekend or this week on Hayling), I would like to leave England with this state of mind, I want to leave with HOPE! Cassandra Clare once wrote “Every meeting led to a parting, and so it would, as long as life was mortal. In every meeting there was some of the sorrow of parting, but in everything parting there was some of the joy of meeting as well.” I precisely want to leave with THIS feeling, with this pain due to the separation (because it is actually unavoidable!) mixed with the joy of seeing all these people I love again! Thus, you’ll understand I’d rather say “I SEE YOU SOON” instead of “GOODBYE” (which is, let’s say it, so much more depressing)!!!
This post is probably the most difficult I have had to write… Not because of a lack of inspiration or anything, but simply because it moves me a lot… One sometimes says that “tears are words the heart can’t say”, “a grief that can’t be spoken”. But as you can’t see me, I have to do my best to express what’s within my tears right now…
Kiera Cass once wrote “You’ve changed me forever. And I’ll never forget you.” I also want to add: ‘I will always be thankful for everything you’ve brought me and I know you will keep on bringing”. You arrived into my life and left your footprints on my heart and I know that having you in my life totally changed me… you changed me for good, even maybe for the better <3
I know I will all see you again, wherever it may be… England, France, Europe, or another continent! But it’s not really where we’ll meet again that matters… What’s truly important is to realise that wherever we are from each other, wherever we go, wherever we’ll be… as far as I’m concerned, you’ll always be in my heart, you’ll live in my heart forever! And you know what one says?! “People who live in your heart are living with you!” You see? Now that you’re in my heart, you’ll be with me forever and we’ll never be apart… So don’t be afraid because I’m leaving… because I love you always, I love you with my heart!
Now I just hope that I’ll be in your hearts as well as you’re in mine… because as Pittacus Lore once wrote “Every beat of my heart belongs to you, whether you ask for it or not.” So don’t give up on me… because I WON’T give up on you!
Just think about this quote of Richard Bach…
“Can miles truly separate you from friends…. If you want to be with someone you love, aren’t you already there? “
So to all of you, my lovely ones, Caroline, Melody, Jamie, Becky, Jenna, Laura, and Stela & Julia, I am not saying GOODBYE… I’m saying I SEE YOU VERY SOON :* Xxx
For this special post, I will change my “motto” a bit and write…
Keep holding on to who you love & enjoy the ride of life ;) ‘Cause Look! You never know who you’re going to find on your way… ;)
You and I will meet again
When we’re least expecting it
One day in some far off place
I will recognize your face
I won’t say goodbye my friend
For you and I will meet again
MUCH LOVE TO ALL OF MY ENGLISH FRIENDS <3 <3 <3 and to all of you, my sweet readers!
From across the sea…
Is this what it feels like to really cry? I shall guess so… But as painful as these tears may be, there’s nonetheless & somehow good news… These tears are the proofs that you’re in my heart <3
