“The sun has set on us, this is the end to our journey.

We have been divorced by silence, truly nothing lasts forever.

With you my days had burned brighter, my nights went by with ease.

Love fades away slowly till nothing is left of us.

Finally, we become what we were originally meant to be…

S t r a n g e r s.”

“Keep smiling through the dark times.

Your heart will lighten up and you will find peace.

Keep working through hard times, smart work doesn’t fail, and you will be free.

There’s always a way out.

Life doesn’t stop just because the sun has set.

The heart doesn’t stop beating even when the body is asleep.”
