How do I say goodbye to what we had?
The good times that made us laugh
Outweigh the bad.

I thought we'd get to see forever
But forever's gone away
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

I don't know where this road
Is going to lead
All I know is where we've been
And what we've been through.

If we get to see tomorrow
I hope it's worth all the wait
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

And I'll take with me the memories
To be my sunshine after the rain
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

And I'll take with me the memories
To be my sunshine after the rain
It's so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.

    This song reminds me of how our life isn't a guarantee. It can be taken from us at any point so we need to live life to the fullest and love all that we can because we never know when our time is up. It makes me realize how life is a wonderful yet fragile thing. It makes me stop and think for a second about how I am living my life and if it is how I wanted my life to turn out.

    I only have few months left to live, I am not sick but I have to end this life. I love my friend so much. I want to live more with him but it's hard to explain why I have to go. I have to commit suicide soon. With this time remains me here all I want is to spend my time and making good memories with him. I love him so much. And I will dedicate this song to him when I will b leaving.

    Before this song I would jus listen to it if I jus wanted to come back down to earth. Sometimes I find that we forget were we come from. Weather it be at work school or home, I found my self to be in such"high demand". Which sometimes ment the that I power that I was placed with would get to me and I would feel almost like a "superhuman" placed above everyone else. Until it happend some one died it was not someone that I knew personal but every one else did and to see what this person ment to there lives. It was such a postive light he shun. It made me think if I were to die, would people think the same for me he was only 17 and I'm 18 soo it not that much of a age differents. But to see how ur never safe you can be taken off this world at any places any age any time!. Ur never to young to die!.
