"I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you.

But most of all, no matter what, a piece of you forever remains left behind in the heart of the one you loved - a piece no future lover could ever get. That piece holds innocence - the belief that love really can last forever.
