      will go on
the world
      will turn
the sun
      will shine
and I’ll
     be fine 

as soon as I learn
       to stop
              missing you

  1. maybe “missing” someone results from the thought that someone is gone but this is just a thought, isn’t it? Cause can someone who lives in us be ever gone?

    • Thanks for your view and intriguing comment!! Yes, you are right. Especially for someone who has passed on, but if you have been left behind by someone that has moved on or moved on to another I think the “missing” is what has been lost and the end to new “nows”. More like my reblog of Chris’ “Gone” – “She left, my head understands, but my heart never will”. Such a classic by Chris.

      • yes , it can be different depending on situation but I think that this is just amazing – the same act can be interpreted differently depending on situation. if somebody dies we cannot blame him/her for leaving but if somebody goes away – we can? What if we are not static, we change, we grow… so what if somebody who leaves us is not the same person anymore as when he/she was with us? We miss not the person but a memory, right?
