Why does the sun go on shining?
Why does the sea rush to shore?
Don't they know...it's the end of the world
Cuz' you're not with me anymore.

Why do the birds go on singing?
Why do the stars shine above?
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when I lost my love.

I wake up in the morning and I wonder
Why everything's the same as it was.
I can't understand...no I can't understand
Why life goes on the way it does.

Why does my heart go on beating?
Why do these eyes of mine cry?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
It ended when we said goodbye.
This song came to me as I was drifting off to sleep last night. My babysitter used to play in on her transistor radio when I was just a little girl. I thought she was so cool with her ratted hair and pinkish white lipstick.

I had to google it today to get the words right. I think it just about says it all. The sun and the stars go on shining, the birds go on singing, our hearts go on beating, life goes on and we cry. We cry because we had to say goodbye. But we love them still.

Because, we are supposed to eventually hear the birds sing and notice all the beauty that is left for us to view. It does not seem possible and down right unfair at first. The world that was is gone but there is another world waiting for us. We just need to grieve for our old life our old loves to make room in our hearts for our new world. And we will all get there in our own way one moment at a time.

Tears in my eyes reading those words, singing that song to myself - but I don't believe my world ended - I am still here, so my life is going on. I will miss my love forever, no matter what else I do, or where I go in my future.

I know this is what he would want me to be like, so this is what I do.

One breath, one step
take care
