“Sometimes, you don’t know what you’ve got
until it’s gone. And they leave, and you learn
to be more appreciative in the future — to be
less self centred. But what about all the times
that you do — when you know what you’ve
got, when you know how tremendously lucky
you are, when every day is a pleasure and
treasured for all that it is? I’ll tell you.
They leave, and that’s it — it’s neither your
fault or theirs, there’s no life lesson or greater
purpose. Sometimes, in life, good things just go.
And you never really get over them.”
