    Old Alone

    Someone I know constantly says this.  I feel bad for this person cause I don't think this person should worry growing old alone since he has lots of people who love him and are behind him.

    Although I'm fine with the idea of growing old alone, a part of me is more than terrified that I'd grow old without my soul-mate by my side.
