People in your live are going to come and go, and you know what, it's okay.

Thought we might defy the odds

Thought we could stay together,

no matter what the haters said.

Thought we might be a forever,

Thought we were for each other,

no matter what the bumps were in between.

But now I've learned

that people are going to come,

and people are going to go,

people are going to say goodbye,

and people are going to say hello,

and you know what?

That's perfectly okay.

I'm never going to forget the memories

I'm never going to forget the laughs

I'm never going to forget you,

and I hope you won't forget me too.

I wish we could have shared more

I wish we could have lasted longer

I wish we could have defied the odds

I wish we could have gone the same way

But we didn't

and you know what?

That's perfectly okay.

Because people are going to come

and people are going to go

people are going to say goodbye

and people are going to wave hello.

But everyone that comes

and everyone that goes

comes and goes into my life

for a reason

and you've come into my life

and you've had to say hello,

but now we're going to part ways

and you've got to go,

and you've got to wave goodbye,

and as much as I don't want to,

as much as I don't want to cry

I will

and I'll wave goodbye.

And you know what?

That's perfectly okay.

~For Emily
