The day "you" went away...

I first heard this song "the day you went away" was about five years ago when I visited a chilly remote city, at a cyber bar. I was attracted by its lyrics at once. And days later, I went away from that city where I would never belong to. Me and my ex-bf departed since then and who would have predicted that it was the last sight, last meeting. On the way back on the train, the song often struck on me along the lonely way home. Years later, this summer, a young vigorous boy intruded my life, though the period is that short, there is something left in my mind... Again, I have to face the similar situation "the day he went away". I didn't see him off because I'm nobody of him; but before the day he left, I went to a far-away bookstore to find the books he mentioned, but in vain. The books he referred were there but they were meaningless and badly written. Then with the accompany of a friend, we drove far to a big department store and there, I mereculously picked up gift for him. First a silver ring, then a pair of silver chop sticks. Yet I was not satisfied with both of them. So on the next day, I shopped again alone this time. And I finally found a gorgeous silver ring for him. That afternoon, I hurried to him (He was shopping with his father). When I arrived, he was almost leaving. so the last sight was so hurried. He didn't get off the car when he saw me walking towards the spot we agreed. I hurried to pass him the little gift which I had a shop assistant packed, and we said goodbye briefly. As he was dissappear from my sight, I knew I was empty and lost. The following days, I was like an empty shell, spent dozens of meaningless hours...
