The leaves fell but all I could feel is bliss. I thought I never mattered to other people but perhaps I really did, sometimes in ways which deviates from my wishes. While some people cannot be kept no matter how tight you hold on to them, some may decide to stay after all. The feeling ones get by having someone else’s fingers tightly around their wrists may just make them stay. But happiness is not found on stubbornly insisting your wishes against fate. Some people are meant to fly and the best way to let them live is to let them go. If the Sakura leaves do not fall, it would never have evoked such happiness from the people who pass by. These thoughts brought smile to my lips, a harmony from the piano to my ears and freedom for my soul. I wiped away the bittersweet tears and finally after a long time, I smiled and took a step away.
