As I'm driving to work an old song comes on the radio and I immediately flash back to a college sweetheart.
I wonder how he is, I remember all the fun we had together and I smile.

What's funny about this, is that 16 years ago, I would have never thought I could've painted that picture.

When we parted, the pain was so intense and so deep, I swear it knocked the wind right out of me. I thought the world was going to stop turning and I thought I would never find anyone that I could love like that again.

I did of course find others that I could love like that again and some that I could love even more.

Pain doesn't last, it's not permanent. It's fleeting. It's therapeutic. It's necessary. It makes you a stronger person.

For those of you that have pain right now, especially the younger set, remember, it will go away. It will get better.
I promise.

That person that you are longing for in vain, that person that seems to be so heartless and uncaring, will someday put a smile on your face. You will smile because of the good memories or you will smile because you got out.

But you will smile :)
