I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
~ Alfred Lord Tennyson
Is it really true that it is "better to have loved and lost then never to have loved"? You will get different answers to that question depending on whom you ask. But one thing is certain, at the moment you are saying goodbye, when the pain is so bad, many will say, "NO! I wish I never met them! This pain is too much to bare." If you are in this situation, take heart and know, that one day in the future, you too may say, "It is better to have loved and lost then never to have loved."
