The value of a thing, its worth, does not lie in whether you are able to keep it with you forever, or own it for eternity. It lies in the uniqueness, the ‘special-ness’ of the experience you had when it was with you. Nothing can take away the passion, the intensity, the aura of those moments. They will always have a special glow in your heart, a secret place inside of you in which no one else may trespass. And, in the end, it does not really matter even if you had t let go of it physically. You are still privileged to have those moments, that short space in Time. And you still have your memories to cherish.
