Accept it or not, there are things in life we don't want to happen but have to accept; things we don't want to know, but we have to learn; and people we can't live without, but have to let go. This is the bitter truth of life no sooner or later every soul will face death one fine day, it is the nature's rule. But then during our stay we all get attached to people, emotionally connected to each other that when our dear ones leave, our life comes to a standstill there is hardly anything left for us except for going through the memories and we try our best to preserve every bit of them.
