Alfred Lord Tennyson wrote:
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.
Indeed, I believe it to be true.
I have loved. I have lost.
And because of this, I'll forever suffer from the heart-wrenching loss of love for the rest of my days.
Because, in the words of Dionne Warwick, I know I'll never love this way again.
