Why does this happen?
Nothing ever stops,
but a lot of things start,

A show might stop,
but you can still watch it.
Why is that?

People get sad when something goes away,
but you can still think of that thing.
Is it the fear of not being able to make new memories,
even when we talk about all the good times?

When you focus on something that has gone,
you remember all the good times and experiences.
yet when we think of what’s already there,
we think of all the fights and hardships.

Why can’t we look back on something and think it’s good,
without it being gone first?
